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.
