Posted: 06/11/2013 - University of Kentucky trustees have approved a $2.7 billion spending plan for the coming year. The spending blueprint amounts to an increase of 2.7 percent, or $71 million, over the budget for the current academic year. The spending plan includes a 3 percent tuition increase for in-state, undergraduate students. That would be the lowest tuition increase in 15 years at the state's flagship university.
