During their Friday meeting, UNT’s Board of Regents accepted the proposals to raise the graduate board tuition rates, replace Eagle Express with Save and Soar and raise tuition in the College of Science, Mayborn School of Journalism and College of Visual Arts and Design.

The semester credit hour rates for the CVAD will be $30 in fall 2019, $38 in fall 2020 and $45 in fall 2021. For the Mayborn School of Journalism, rates will be $15 in fall 2019 and $30 in fall 2020. For the College of Science, the rate will be $8 in fall 2019, $16 in fall 2020 and $24 in fall 2021.

While the effects of the tuition raises will not be seen until the incremental raises are complete, there will be immediate action taken to begin resolving issues the programs have.

“We’re in our first year of differential tuition in the College of Business,” said Robert Watling, vice provost of academic resources. “Last year we were able to make pretty substantial investments in faculty. We were able to hire more than 10 additionally faculty in the College of Business so far.”

As time goes on, more differential tuition raises will be proposed to the board. To assess which schools need work, the provost’s office are looking at student-faculty ratios, quality of learning and whether the programs are ranked in the top 100.

“The provost did inform the board that these rates will continue to be phased in,” Watling said. “We will continue to do assessments and continue to bring it to the board.”

The Eagle Express tuition plan will be phased out as students currently on the plan are able to finish with it, while all new students starting next fall will use the Save and Soar tuition plan.

Save and Soar will play a similar role to the Eagle Express plan in that it locks in rates for incoming, first-time freshmen and undergraduate transfer students who meet Texas residency requirements and will graduate in four years.

These locked-in rates will not be affected by the incremental rising of the board designated tuition or the differential tuition plan, so as rates rise, Save and Soar students’ rates will remain the same rate as when they began attending the university. However, the differential rates will be a little higher for Save and Soar students than traditional students.
