TOPEKA, Kan. (KAKE) - The Kansas Board of Regents have approved flat tuition at the six state universities today.

“The Regents are excited that students at state universities in Kansas will see no tuition increases next academic year,” said Kansas Board of Regents Chair Cheryl Harrison-Lee. “I’m thankful that Governor Kelly and the Legislature provided funding for flat tuition. Their partnership in this area, coupled with their support for increased need-based student financial aid, has helped us ensure affordability for Kansas families.”

"This is the fourth year in a row that the Board has approved flat tuition for undergraduate resident students at the University of Kansas," read KBOR's press release. "Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University and Wichita State University have had no undergraduate resident tuition increases in three of the past four years." 

One of the responsibilities of KBOR is to set tuition and fees at state universities. The tuition and fee proposals that were approved by the Board today are available on the Board's website.
