BYU announces tuition increases

BYU undergraduate students will pay an additional $55 per semester in tuition next year as a result of a 4.7 percent increase that was approved by the university's board of trustees. Tuition for the 1995-96 school year will be $1,225 a semester.

Tuition for spring and summer terms in 1996 will remain $400 each. That reflects BYU Pres. Rex E. Lee's already announced plan to encourage students to use spring and summer terms to fill graduation requirements.In 1995-96, advanced-standing or graduate students will pay $1,435 per semester, also a 4.7 percent increase, while Law School and Graduate School of Management students will pay $2,300 per semester, a 4.5 percent increase.

Tuition rates for spring and summer terms in 1996 for advanced-standing students will increase from $685 to $717, a 4.7 percent increase.

Students who are not members of the LDS Church pay tuition that is 50 percent higher than LDS students. Their 1995-96 tuition rates will see comparable increases of 4.7 percent for undergraduate and advanced-standing students and 4.5 percent for law and management students.
