University of Memphis students will face another tuition increase, though it falls far below the average eight percent rise they felt over the last 15 years.
"The University of Memphis remains committed to maintaining affordability and accessibility for our students," said President David Rudd in a statement. "We are able to keep tuition and fee increases low due to cost-saving initiatives and efficiency measures. Our goal is to provide a quality education in an environment that promotes and provides for student access."
Undergraduate, graduate, and law students will pay 2.3 percent more in tuition. Law students will pay $18 per credit hour, graduate students will pay $11 per credit hour, and undergraduates will pay $7 per credit hour. Out-of-state students will not face a tuition increase.
In-state undergraduate students enrolled in a full academic course load of 12 hours will pay $7,488 per year, as well as additional fees of $1,637. In-state graduate students enrolled in at least 10 hours will pay about $9,800 annually, along with mandatory fees of $1,643. Students enrolled in the Cecil C. Humphrey's School of Law will pay $16,688 and $1,475 in mandatory fees.
Undergraduate students' tuition increase is less than the previous year's hike.
