Officials Approve Tuition Hike for Kentucky Colleges

- Students attending college in Kentucky could be facing a tuition hike.

The Council on Post-Secondary Education approved allowing an increase up to 8 percent over the next two years. The panel says it's necessary due to less state funding and higher university expectations.

The hike was capped at no more than 5 percent in either year and would apply to in-state undergrads. The panel also allowed community colleges to increase tuition by 4 percent over the next two years.

Each school will decide individually how to adopt any increases.
