Board of Regents Raise Tuition Fees

It’s official – the Kansas Board of Regents approved new rates yesterday that will increase tuition costs for university students next fall.

The new rates will create about $26-million in additional revenue for the 6-state universities – Kansas, Kansas State, Wichita State, Pittsburg State, Emporia State and Fort Hays.

The new rate increases also mean the schools will receive more money from student tuition than from tax dollars.

For undergraduate Kansas residents the high-end of the tuition hike will be at Emporia State – 6.9% and the low-end at Kansas State and Fort Hays – 4%.

The tuition increase will go into effect beginning in August with the 2011 fall semester.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
