KY Higher Education Council Mulls Tuition Cap

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Council on Postsecondary Education is considering whether to cap tuition increases at 5 percent for two public universities in Kentucky and lower than that for other schools.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports the plan proposed by the council's staff will come up at a meeting Friday.

If enacted, it would require the University of Louisville and University of Kentucky to increase tuition by around half the 9 percent increase from the current academic year.

University of Louisville provost Shirley Willihnganz said the proposed caps were expected but place the schools in a difficult position, particularly because of recent budget cuts.

UK president Lee Todd says if the recommendations are approved, the university will propose tuition rates in line with them.
