Board Resolution

-2-

November 6, 2014

Resolved that the Five Year Tuition Plan, covering the period
2011/12 to 2015/16, as outlined in the attached table (at the
maximum up to level), be, and the same hereby is,
approved.
Background
The NY-SUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program Act has provided the State
University with a historic ability to plan for resident and certain non-resident
undergraduate tuition rates over a five year period. The ability for students and
their parents to plan for the cost of college has always been important, and the
implementation of rational tuition brings essential stability and planning ability to
the State University.
The Challenge Act, thereafter amended by Laws of 2012, Chapter 57, Part
P, 1, NYS Education Law 355(2)(h)(4)(ii), specifically calls for the Board of
Trustees to approve a tuition plan each year, as follows:
On or before November thirtieth, two thousand eleven, the trustees shall
approve and submit to the chairs of the assembly ways and means
committee and the senate finance committee and to the director of the
budget a master tuition plan setting forth the tuition rates that the
trustees propose for resident undergraduate students for the five year
period commencing with the two thousand eleven--two thousand twelve
academic year and ending in the two thousand fifteen-two thousand
sixteen academic year, and shall submit any proposed amendments to
such plan by November thirtieth of each subsequent year thereafter
through November thirtieth, two thousand fifteen, and provided further,
that with the approval of the board of trustees, each university center
may increase non-resident undergraduate tuition rates each year by not
more than ten percent over the tuition rates of the prior academic year
for a five year period commencing with the semester following the
semester in which the governor and the chancellor of the state university
of New York approve the NY-SUNY 2020 proposal for such university
center.

This year, the Board of Trustees is approving the final year of the Five
Year Tuition Plan for the State University. The tuition increases presented in the
attachment represent the maximum, or up to, level of possible tuition. Annual
tuition changes will be implemented by rule-making each year upon enactment of
the State budget.
