University Heads Propose Tuition Increases

University officials today (THUR) made the case for increasing tuition costs at Kansas schools. The Kansas Board of Regents heard the proposals as part of their monthly meeting. The increase at the University of Kansas would be 5.5 percent for undergraduate students. KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little says the school has seen significant state funding cuts in recent years, but they aren’t trying to replace that on the backs of students.

Gray-Little says they are looking for ways to increase efficiency to help absorb the funding cuts. The proposed increases for resident undergraduate tuition range from 3.6 percent at Fort Hays State to 6.8 percent at Emporia State. The Board of Regents will take final action on the plans next month.
