Colleges Seeking Higher Tuition Hikes

KSAL StaffJune 13, 2016

Many of Kansas’ state universities are asking the system’s governing board this week to approve tuition increases higher than first proposed a month ago.

The University of Kansas wants tuition increased by 5 percent. That’s one percentage point higher than the school sought last month.

The state’s other universities propose tuition boosts ranging from 4.9 percent at Emporia State to 6 percent at Fort Hays State. Only the University of Kansas’ medical center and Wichita State did not increase their rate increase requests. They remain at 5 percent.

The revisions are in response to Gov. Sam Brownback’s signing last month of a state budget calling for additional higher education funding cuts.

The Kansas Board of Regents is to vote on the requests Wednesday.
