Tuition increases, fee proposals approved
for Kentucky’s public colleges, universities

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education has approved the 2012-13 tuition and mandatory fee proposals for the state’s public colleges and universities.

The rate increases for undergraduate, in-state students include: Kentucky Community and Technical College System, 3.7 percent; Eastern Kentucky University, 5.2 percent; Kentucky State University, 5 percent; Morehead State University, 5 percent; Murray State University, 4 percent; University of Kentucky, 6 percent; University of Louisville, 6 percent; and Western Kentucky University, 4.9 percent. The Council approved Northern Kentucky University’s tuition and fee schedule in April.

The new tuition revenue, estimated at $45.1 million, will help offset the recent $62.6 million of cuts contained in the 2012 budget bill (HB 265). Institutions are also projecting a $62.1 million increase in institutional fixed costs.
