LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Public university leaders in Kansas are being encouraged to start working on next year's tuition proposals now, rather than wait until the spring semester.

Kansas Board of Regents chairman Kenny Wilk says the revenue stream from tuition is too significant to wait until the last minute to get it figured out.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the regents traditionally have received tuition and fee requests from the universities in May before approving them in June.

Regents say they'd like schools to have a more definite idea of what they would request before the board formulates its budget proposal for Gov. Sam Brownback and the Legislature.

Universities in recent years have had to rely more on tuition from students as state funding has decreased.
