"Each year we carefully and seriously consider our university's tuition rates and anytime there is a proposed change it is necessary to advance our system-wide commitment to academic excellence, ensure financial stability, and manage increasing costs. Tuition revenue is used to support the academic operations of our universities in educating our students and supporting their success," Dana Keith, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration for The University of Alabama System, said in a committee meeting on Thursday.
