VERSAILLES, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System said in a release Friday afternoon that their board of regents voted to freeze tuition at its current rate across the state.

Officials said one major factor behind the move is the financial hardships many families are facing due to the pandemic; with KCTCS Board Chair Gail Henson saying‚ ”The board wanted to help students, and we felt keeping our tuition at the same rate would help thousands of families.”

President of the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education Aaron Thompson praised the move, saying “Even with our rally, many students still face extreme financial hardships that could derail their education. That’s why I want to thank KCTCS for holding the line on tuition. Their leadership and commitment to affordability helps ensure that we don’t leave anyone behind,”.

The current rate at KCTCS is $179 per credit hour for in state students, $358 per credit hour for students in counties bordering Kentucky, and $627 per credit hour for all other out of state students.
