The Council will consider Murray State University’s tuition proposal at its May 22 meeting. Last month, the Council approved tuition proposals from the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, the University of Kentucky and Morehead State University.

The Council’s tuition policy, approved in January, establishes maximum parameters for undergraduate tuition and fee rates. The parameters are linked to state general fund appropriation levels, median family income, market factors and a student affordability measure.

The Council also approved exceptions to its tuition policy for selected groups of nonresident students in contiguous or targeted counties for KCTCS, Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, Northern Kentucky University and Western Kentucky University. Council policy requires nonresidents pay at least 1.75 times the resident rate.

Kentucky's postsecondary education system encompasses eight public institutions and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, numerous independent institutions and Kentucky Adult Education. The system represents 235,083 students, 538,866 Kentucky alumni and 294,896 GED recipients. When Kentuckians earn postsecondary degrees, their skills improve and their wages go up; they are more likely to lead healthy lives and be engaged in their communities; and they build better futures for themselves and their families.
