Tuition increases proposed

A tuition increase was proposed last week for some University of Kansas students.

The proposal would allow tuition to increase 3.4 percent over last year for incoming freshmen under the 2014-2015 tuition proposal.

Two-thirds of returning KU undergraduates would see no tuition increase, according to officials.

Tuition and fees for other Kansas students would rise by 4.3 percent for Lawrence campus graduate students and undergraduates not in a tuition compact, 4.8 percent for KUMC undergraduates and graduate students, and 4.9 percent for medical students.

Other state universities also have tuition proposals. They include Kansas State, 6.2 percent; Wichita State, 4.9 percent; Emporia State, 5.6 percent; Fort Hays State, 2.5 percent; and Pittsburg State, 5.5 percent.
