4Effective Fall 2011, the University of Arkansas increased base tuition, incorporated several mandatory fees into the base tuition rate and consolidated several student program fees into a single Student Activity Fee. Incorporating the mandatory fees into the tuition rate caused the tuition portion to increase at a greater rate relative to mandatory fees in the sum of the total. The increase in the sum total of undergraduate resident tuition and fees for the 2011-12 academic year is six percent.

5Effective Fall 2014, a portion of the base tuition rate increase was due to a revenue neutral reduction in the Network and Data Systems mandatory fee and a directly related increase in base tuition. The increase in the sum total of undergraduate resident tuition and fees for the 2014-15 academic year is five percent.

6Tuition for 2013-14 returning law students will be slightly lower.

7Tuition for 2014-15 third-year law students will be slightly lower.
