Regents To Consider Proposed Tuition Hikes

The changes would raise an additional $34 million during the fiscal year beginning in July.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Some public university students in Kansas would see tuition increase by almost 9 percent this fall under proposals being considered by the Board of Regents.

The regents are expected to vote Wednesday afternoon on new tuition rates proposed by the universities. The changes would raise an additional $34 million during the fiscal year beginning in July.

The increases would partially offset cuts in state funding approved this year by legislators while allowing for faculty salary increases.

Out of state graduate students at Emporia State University would see the biggest increase at 8.8 percent. The smallest increase, 3 percent, would be for out of state veterinary medical students at Kansas State University.

For undergraduates from Kansas, tuition would rise 7 percent at Kansas State and slightly less than 5 percent at the University of Kansas.
