Proposal Seeks Room, Board Rate Hikes In Kansas
Associated Press - November 8, 2013 4:19 am
Three open seats on the Kansas Board of Regents have yet to be filled even though the board's next meeting is just days away.
Room and board costs at Kansas’ six public universities would increase next year under a proposal before the state’s Board of Regents.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that under the proposal, the traditional arrangement of two residents per room and a typical meal plan would increase 2.5 percent next year at the University of Kansas.
Students would see increases of 4.5 percent at Kansas State University; 3.6 percent at Emporia State; 3 percent at Pittsburg State; and 2.1 percent at Fort Hays State. The proposed increase at Wichita State is not comparable to previous years because the school has a new housing facility.
The Regents will take final action on the rates during their December meeting.
