The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education has given final approval to university proposals for tuition and mandatory fees. Overall, the tuition rate change for resident undergraduates averages 1.5% across the system.

The Council on Postsecondary Education’s tuition ceilings set last year allowed schools to raise tuition 3% over two years, but no more than 2% in any one year. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System campuses were limited to no more than a $5 per credit hour increase over two years and no more than a $3 per credit hour increase in any one year.

For resident undergrads, the tuition increases were 1% at EKU, 1.8% at KSU, 1.1% at Morehead and Western, 1.2% at U of L, 1.9% at Murray, and 2% at UK. Rates for Northern Kentucky University and KCTCS were approved in April.
