Kentucky's Council on Postsecondary Education approved a 3% ceiling for tuition increases for the 2013-14 academic year for in-state undergraduate students at Kentucky’s public colleges and universities. It is the smallest average tuition increase for Kentucky public institutions in 15 years. Last year the Council allowed up to a 5% increase.
Taking their cue from a certain well-known basketball event, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education is calling its push to encourage Kentucky students to apply their community college credits toward a bachelor's degree "Transfer Madness."
“This allows students really to do a fairly deep exploration of your campuses without ever having to leave home,” said Robert King, president of the council.
