UA System announces tuition freeze for in-state students

University of Alabama System Chancellor Finis E. St. John announced today that the System Office will propose a freeze on in-state tuition at all three campuses for the 2019-2020 academic year at the June meeting of the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees, effective with the Fall 2019 semester.

“For the first time in over 40 years, all three of our campuses will have no tuition increase for Alabama residents,” St. John said in remarks at the UAH Institutional Board meeting today.

He said the decision to freeze in-state tuition Systemwide has been a long desired, yet elusive, goal of the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees. St. John praised campus leadership for their tireless efforts to make the tuition freeze a reality.

St. John had a clear message for students, parents, government leaders and the citizens of Alabama: “We hear the needs of our students and their families, and we will continue to make their concerns our highest priority in the months and years ahead.”

The Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama System is responsible for reviewing and approving tuition for the three campuses.
