TOPEKA | The University of Kansas is proposing a 4 percent increase in tuition.
The Kansas Board of Regents today is hearing proposals from KU and the state’s other public universities.
The potential tuition hikes are prompted by large funding cuts from the state, which has seen its revenues plummet in the recession.
University officials said they would strive to minimize any increases knowing the downturn impacts families as much as it does the state’s coffers.
A final decision on tuition levels is set for June.
KU said 40 percent of students would see no increase because they are locked into the university’s tuition compact, which keeps tuition flat for four years.
