Will A College Education In Kansas Cost More This Fall?
Some public university students in Kansas could see their tuition jump by almost 9 percent this fall.
The state board of regents expect to vote Wednesday afternoon on new tuition rates proposed by the universities.
The tuition hike would partially offset state funding cuts legislators made this year, while allowing for faculty salary increases.
The changes would raise an additional $34 million dollars over the next fiscal year.
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.
Tuition would rise 7 percent for in-state students at Kansas State and slightly less than 5 percent for University of Kansas students.
Wichita State has asked for an 8 percent increase.
