KENTUCKY (WEHT) – The University of Kentucky President says in-state undergraduate students will see a 2.4% increase by this fall.

The increase will bring the annual cost to $12,360.

Out-of-state tuition will increase 6.2% to $30,680.

Faculty and staff will share a two percent merit raise pool under the proposed budget.

The university says it relies more and more on tuition especially from higher out-of-state rates paid by students.

The university board will approve the budget in June.
