K-State’s Manhattan, Polytechnic and Olathe campuses will be revising the tuition rate increase to 5.81 percent to offset the higher than expected state general fund reduction recently announced by the governor.
If approved, the estimated revenue from the proposed tuition increases would generate approximately $11.7 million to fund key priorities. The Board of Regents is scheduled to approve the tuition increases at its June 15 meeting.
Provost and Senior Vice President April Mason and Vice President Cindy Bontrager made that announcement in “K-State Today” Tuesday. As earlier announced on KMAN, a five percent increase in tuition and fees was originally proposed during the Board of Regents meeting May 18th.
KMAN has reached out to several K-State officials regarding the change and hopes to hear later Wednesday.
