BOR Tuition Hearing Continues

Murray, KY – Murray State University's Board of Regents is still hard at work this afternoon working to determine tuition and mandatory fees for next year. The board is at odds over a per credit hour charge for students taking more than 15 credit hours per semester. The Board has already passed a 4 percent tuition increase. The per-credit-hour charge would cost any student taking more than 15 hours 239 dollars per additional credit hour. Nine individuals spoke out against the proposed increase during the public participation portion of the meeting. The board will also vote on housing and dining fees. The board is still scheduled to hear a report from an Agriculture Task force, which was charged with assessing the School of Agriculture and its facilities.
