Illinois Tuition Waiver Oversight Moves to Legislature

Wikimedia Commons

An Illinois Senate education committee has approved a measure to end the controversial legislative scholarship program. The measure creates a task force to study all state university tuition waivers. The existing program allows lawmakers to award two students in their district a four-year tuition waiver to a state university. The measure came under fire after reports that lawmakers have given awards to relatives, children of political allies or students outside their district.

MSU Board of Regents Sets Tuition

Tuition at Murray State will increase by 4% for the next academic year. The increase amounts to around $130 per semester. The MSU Board of Regents voted against the administration's 3% recommendation. President Randy Dunn says the impetus behind his suggestion was to keep cost low for students while the university looks for ways to rethink financial planning with declining state support. The board voted to up tuition by an additional percentage point to lessen the impact on the university's reserves.

Tuition Ceilings Set for Kentucky Institutions

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education voted on several tuition-related items at its meeting today at the University of Kentucky.

The council will allow comprehensive universities like Murray State to raise tuition up to 5%. Rates for community colleges are capped at 4% and research university rates capped 6%.

The increase is expected to provide the institutions another $45.1 million dollars in extra revenue, but CPE officials say that state appropriation cuts to higher education mean University's will still operate at an overall $79 million deficit.
