Public universities in Kansas are proposing tuition hikes significantly lower than some of the larger increases seen in recent years. The schools presented the plans to the Kansas Board of Regents last week.
The increases in tuition and fees for instate, undergraduate students range from 1.2 percent at Kansas State University to 3 percent at the University of Kansas.
Those numbers are smaller than some past increases. Over the last decade, annual tuition hikes have sometimes run as high as 9 percent.
