Non-resident students who have earned an Arizona high school diploma or general education diploma may be eligible for an undergraduate tuition rate equivalent to 150% of undergraduate resident tuition.
Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) Policy
- A student who graduated from an Arizona high school, but who is not otherwise eligible for resident tuition status, may be eligible for a non-resident undergraduate tuition rate of 150% of undergraduate resident tuition. If the student has attended high school in Arizona for a minimum of 3 years while physically present in Arizona and graduated from an Arizona high school (or attained the equivalent while physically present in Arizona for a minimum of 3 years).
- The non-resident rate for Arizona high school graduates would apply to tuition for undergraduate students. This rate does not apply to differential tuition or tuition for online, accelerated, or distributed programs.
- “High School” is defined as grades 9-12. Completion of the 9th grade while physically present in Arizona, whether at an Arizona middle school or high school or equivalent, will count toward the Arizona high school attendance requirement. The three years of Arizona high school attendance do not need to be consecutive.
- A student who meets the requirements of this policy will be eligible for the non-resident undergraduate rate regardless of when the student graduated from an Arizona high school.
- The policy is effective beginning with the fall 2015 semester.
- The 150% tuition rate cannot be combined with UA Merit Scholarships.
