Panel approves tuition increase

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Council on Postsecondary Education has approved allowing Kentucky universities to increase tuition by up to 8 percent over the next two years.

The Courier-Journal reports the panel said on Tuesday that the increase is necessary due to less state funding and higher university expectations. The hike was capped at no more than 5 percent in either year and would apply to in-state undergraduate students.

The panel also allowed community colleges to increase tuition by 4 percent over the next two years.

Each school will decide individually how to adopt any increases.
