Many donors choose to establish scholarships that cover resident tuition (Pima County students), non-resident tuition (non-Pima County students) and undocumented student tuition (assesed at the non-resident rate), fees and books for one or more academic semesters. For a full-time resident student taking 12 units per semester, the cost is approximately $1,350 per semester. For a full-time non-resident or undocumented student taking 12 units per semester, the cost is approximately $3,800 per semester.
