TUCSON — The Arizona Board of Regents has pushed back when it will set tuition and fees for the state's three public universities.

The board will set tuition, fees and dorm rates in March, moving back to a more traditional calendar after trying to set fees in the fall.

The board set tuition in the spring before 2006, but that changed when students pressured the regents to give them notice in the fall before raising costs.

Regents say setting costs in the spring allows the board to consider better estimates of enrollment and have better knowledge of the state budget.

The presidents of Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University will make recommendations in the third week in February, a hearing will be held the first week of March, and the board will set rates the following week.
