Tuition Increases at Kentucky Universities
By Brooke Heath
Last week, Kentucky's Council of Postsecondary Education approved a tuition and mandatory fee increase for the state's public universities for the 2007-2008 academic year.

At a meeting in Frankfort, the council approved increases that ranged from $180 to $618, according to Higher Education Washington, Inc.'s NewsLine. These increases will affect the following five schools: University of Louisville, Kentucky State, Murray State, Northern Kentucky University, and Western Kentucky University.

The finalized increases come after a January meeting during which the council approved increases for the University of Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, council president Tom Layzell said that all of the increases were within council guidelines. He also said that for the first time in several years, none of the increases reached into the double-digits.

Below are the new figures showing what in-state students will pay for one year's tuition, as well as required fees, and the amount and percentage of each increase.

Institution New Yearly Tuition & Fees Increase (in $) Increase (in %)
EKU $5,682 $490 9.40%
KCTCS $3,450 $180 5.50%
KSU $5,320 $370 7.50%
Morehead $5,280 $410 8.40%
Murray $5,418 $420 8.40%
NKU $5,952 $504 9.30%
UK $7,199 $595 9.00%
U of L $6,870 $618 9.90%
WKU $6,416 $464 7.80%

According to the State Journal, tuition costs for graduate students at KSU remain the same as they were for the 2007 spring semester. Full-time residents will pay $300 per credit hour for each semester of the academic year, while full-time nonresidents will pay $700 per credit hour for each semester.

"There are no fee increases for us-just tuition," KSU president Mary Evans Sias said.

How EdFed Helped others!
I recently did a consolidation for my son, who is attending medical school. The representatives that I spoke with were extremely helpful. They explained every step in the consolidation process in detail so that I had no questions. They were also very efficient in following up with me.
