Kansas Board of Regents approves tuition hikes - PSU out of state students to see highest increase

Updated:

 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Board of Regents has approved tuition increases at public universities that will have some students paying nearly 9 percent more this fall.

The increases approved Wednesday by the board are expected to raise an additional $34 million during the fiscal year beginning in July.

The universities want to boost faculty salaries and pursue other initiatives, but the increases in tuition also would partially offset cuts in state funding enacted by legislators.

Out-of-state graduate students at Pittsburg State University would see the biggest increase at 8.8 percent. The smallest increase, 3 percent, would be for out-of-state veterinary medical students at Kansas State University.

For undergraduates from Kansas, tuition would rise 7 percent at Kansas State and almost 5 percent at the University of Kansas.
