Tuition at Kansas’ six state universities will go up this fall.
The Board of Regents agreed to hikes ranging from 2.5 to 2.9 percent.
Kansas State sought 3 percent, but lowered its request when it became clear the Regents were critical of the idea.
Regent and former state lawmaker Bill Feuerborn had hoped to keep tuition flatter.
“My concern is, like I stated, we’re going to price some families out of sending their sons and daughters to college," he said.
