TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Regents for Arizona's public universities have voted to hike tuition by as much as 22 percent, far above the average for such increases seen nationally last year.

The Arizona Board of Regents vote Thursday means that tuition and fees at the University of Arizona in Tucson will increase by 22 percent for incoming in-state freshmen undergraduates.

They'll jump by 19.5 percent for in-state undergraduates at Arizona State University in Tempe and by 15 percent for the Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

But the Regents also decided to give rebates between $350 to $750 to some incoming in-state undergraduates at UA and NAU because those schools have rainy day funds to address cuts in their budget by the Arizona Legislature.
