Brigham Young University will implement an approximately 3-percent increase across all tuition categories for the 2014-2015 academic year. This will bring the undergraduate rate per semester from $2,425 to $2,500, an increase of 3.1 percent or $75.
This 3-percent increase is intended to cover cost increases such as salaries, payroll benefits, travel, supplies, library and laboratory materials, etc.
Next year's tuition for advanced-standing (graduate) students will be raised from $3,065 to $3,155 per semester, an increase of $90. Law School and Graduate School of Management students will pay $5,810, an increase of $170 from last year's rate of $5,640.
Undergraduate tuition for spring and summer terms will also increase from $1,213 to $1,250, or $38 more. Spring/summer 2015 rates for advanced-standing students will be $1,578, an increase of $45.
Students who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pay twice the listed tuition rates, and those rates in 2014-2015 will also reflect the 2.9 to 3.1 increase.
Non-LDS undergraduates will pay $5,000, an increase of $150; advanced-standing non-LDS students will pay $6,310, an increase of $180; and non-LDS law and business graduate students will pay $11,620, an increase of $340.
