TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Public universities in Kansas want to raise
their tuition for most students this fall.
The state Board of Regents released a summary of the proposals
Wednesday, a day before school officials were to present them
publicly. The regents oversee state universities, community
colleges and technical colleges and set tuition rates every year.
Undergraduates from outside Kansas attending the University of
Kansas would see the biggest increase if they're not in a program
in which they promise to graduate in four years. Their tuition
would jump from $9,075 to $9,750 for a full-time course load of 15
hours, an increase of 7.4 percent.
