Eastern Kentucky University students would pay 2.9 percent more in tuition this fall under a proposal being considered by the EKU Board of Regents finance committee, which met Monday in Lexington.
If approved, tuition at EKU will have gone up about 8 percent over two years, which is the maximum allowed by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.
Graduate students would pay 3.75 percent more.
The tuition increases do not include a new $300 annual fee for the Richmond-based university's 16,000 students. The fee will help finance $60 million for planned construction projects on campus.
The university's $348 million annual budget is based on stable enrollment, although officials said the school is seeing growth in its online classes.
Revenue from online classes is expected to increase about $1.4 million from last year.
The full board will vote on the budget at its June 22 meeting in Richmond.
