KCTCS Students Face Double Digit Tuition Hike

Another proposed tuition increase for Kentucky's sixteen community and technical colleges is the largest percentage of any state post-secondary institution for the coming school year.

Students could face a 13 percent tuition increase next fall, if approved by the Council on Postsecondary Education.

The Kentucky community and technical college system's Board of Regents approved the proposed increase on Thursday.

UK officials are meeting with students Friday afternoon to discuss the university's planned tuition hike. Administrators approved a nine percent increase last week, but that still has to be approved by the state.

EKU, WKU and U of L students are all also likely to face at least an 8% tuition hike next fall.
