UK President Calls For Tuition Increase

University of Kentucky President Dr. Lee Todd has called for a 9% tuition increase for students and no pay raises for employees in his proposed budget.

Reports say UK will have to eliminate $14 million from the 2008-2009 budget.

However, Todd says UK will pay for all increases in employees' health insurance premiums.

He says the tuition increases are necessary because UK will lose $20 million in state money.

Out-of-state students would pay 6.6% more in tuition.
