UK proposes "modest" tuition hike

Posted: Updated:
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Students at the University of Kentucky would face tuition increases of between 5 and 8 percent in the fall under a proposal from the school's president.

In an email, UK President Eli Capilouto said the "modest" hike is to offset state budget cuts. Under his proposal, in-state students would pay 5 percent more in tuition next year and out-of-state students would pay pay 8 percent more.

The Council of Postsecondary Education recently approved up to an 8 percent increase in tuition over the next two years.

A University of Louisville spokesman says it's planning a 5 percent increase in the fall and a 3 percent increase the following year.
