Eastern and Western Kentucky Universities Raising Tuition

Eastern and Western Kentucky Universities are raising tuition.

On Friday, board members at Eastern Kentucky approved a 4 percent tuition hike for all students. Residence hall rates will remain the same, but meal plans are also going up 5 percent.

Western Kentucky's board also passed a 4 percent tuition hike, and gave its president a "one-time" $1000 bonus, instead of a raise.

UK announced last month it would raise tuition the maximum of 5 percent.
