BYU announces tuition hike for 2006-2007

Brigham Young University will raise tuition 6.2 percent for the 2006-2007 academic year, bringing the undergraduate rate per semester to $1,810, up $105 from the previous year.

General graduate school tuition will increase 6.3 percent to $2,290, with tuition for students at the J. Reuben Clark Law School and graduate students at the Marriott School of Management increasing by 10.1 percent to $4,100.

“Because we had a series of years when our tuition increases were minimal, and in many cases below those of other institutions in the state and throughout the nation, the Board of Trustees felt is was necessary to make an adjustment this year,” said Brian K. Evans, chief financial officer at BYU.

Tuition increases over the previous five years have averaged 3 percent.

Students who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will now pay 200 percent of member tuition, up from 150 percent, an increase that will be put into effect at institutions throughout the Church Educational System.

“The non-member rate is still less expensive than out-of-state tuition at many state universities,” said Evans.

For example, figures from the University of Utah indicate that undergraduate in-state students pay $2,149 per semester for 15 credit hours, while out-of-state students pay $6,686.

BYU becomes first U.S. university to offer Azerbaijani 101

January 18, 2023
“There could be no better place than BYU to have the first Azerbaijani class,” said ambassador Khazar Ibrahim. “BYU’s programs are at the top of the list because of their depth––BYU teaches not only about the language, but the culture too. The cultural nuance of a people is integral in understanding their language.”
