8% Tuition Hike Proposed At EKU

Students at Eastern Kentucky University may be paying more to attend classes there in the fall.

University leaders say they'll ask the state Board of Regents for an eight percent tuition increase. If approved, each in-state student would have to pay an extra 228 dollars, starting this fall.

EKU President Doug Whitlock discussed the proposal during a forum with students on Wednesday night.

Last week, the University of Kentucky proposed a nine percent tuition hike. That proposal also has to be approved.
