The decision announced Friday by the system’s Board of Regents means students will pay the same amount for tuition in the next academic year.
The board had previously approved a $3-per-credit-hour tuition increase for in-state KCTCS students for the 2015-16 academic term. The regents on Friday revised the 2015-16 tuition rates to keep them the same as current rates.
The board’s action means tuition will remain at $147 per credit hour rate for in-state students, $294 per credit hour rate for out-of-state students from counties contiguous to Kentucky and $515 for all other out-of-state students.
KCTCS Regents Chairman P.G. Peeples says the board’s action recognizes that tuition remains one of the biggest barriers to students pursuing postsecondary education.
