Ky. community colleges raise tuition, salaries


CUMBERLAND, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Community and Technical College System Board of Regents has voted to raise tuition by 2.86 percent and give faculty and staff pay raises of 2 percent.

President Michael B. McCall recommended the increases that were approved on Friday.

Full-time employees at the state's 16 community and technical colleges who received favorable performance evaluations will get the 2 percent raises or $1,000, whichever is larger. Tuition for in-state students will rise from $140 to $144 per credit hour.

Board Chairman P.G. Peeples said the colleges continue to be "the best postsecondary education value in the state."
