UK Considering Tuition Hike

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- – University of Kentucky officials say state budget cuts could mean a tuition increase next year of around five percent. The House version of the budget proposal calls for a 1.4 percent reduction in funding for Kentucky universities.

At Tuesday's Board of Trustees meeting, UK President Lee Todd said that kind of cut would also require another year without salary increases for faculty and staff. UK trustees will approve next year's tuition rates at its April 20th meeting.
