TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Regents is raising tuition and fees at state universities this fall by as much as 5.7 percent for some students.

The board approved proposals Wednesday from the six state universities and the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.

But the regents said increases in the tuition were the smallest since 2001.

The increases would provide almost $29 million in additional revenues for the universities. The largest is 5.7 percent increase for in-state undergraduate students at Kansas State University's campus in Salina.

In-state undergraduates at Kansas State's main campus in Manhattan will see an increase of 5.2 percent. At the University of Kansas, the most popular option for tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates will rise by 3.4 percent.
