UK Could Face Double Digit Tuition Increase

University of Kentucky administrators say the school could face a double-digit tuition increase if its forced to cut its budget by 4%.

In a letter sent to the Kentucky Council On Postsecondary Education, officials outline how it would handle a loss of more than $12 million in state funds.

The Herald Leader says some plans could include a hiring freeze for some 150 positions that would make less classes available and cause graduation delays.

The state has already scaled back funding to UK by $20 million in the last 11 months.
