KU proposes even larger tuition increase in response to late state budget cuts - Sara Shepherd, LJ World

Kansas University is now proposing a 5 percent tuition increase for the upcoming school year, an even larger hike than the 4 percent increase proposed a month ago. The Kansas Board of Regents is scheduled to vote on revised tuition proposals from KU and other state universities on Wednesday. Numbers made public this week by the Regents show that, like KU, most universities did elect to ask for even larger tuition increases than initially planned. The board heard universities’ tuition proposals at its May meeting, but midway through the day’s presentations learned that Gov. Sam Brownback signed the state budget and ordered additional allotment cuts to higher education, including cuts to KU that were millions more than expected.
