UK trustees vote for 6 percent tuition, fees hike

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky board of
trustees has voted to increase student tuition and fees by 6
percent.

The board voted Tuesday, following plans announced last month to
increase tuition as state funding for postsecondary education saw a
6.4 percent cut.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/IAWnXt ) reports the change
for in-state tuition for underclassmen will be $274, from $4,564 to
$4,838, per semester in the 2012-13 academic year. Upper division
students will also see costs climb from $4,696 to $4,978.

University President Eli Capilouto says declining state support,
research funding and endowment resources have strained the
university budget, prompting the tuition increase.
