Northern Kentucky University
(Highland Heights, Ky.) - The cost of tuition is going up for students at Northern Kentucky University.
NKU’s Board of Regents asked the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education for a five percent tuition increase according to the Kentucky Enquirer. The council approved the increase last week.
That takes the cost per semester for a full-time Kentucky resident student $240 higher to $3,744.
There will also be a new $60 per semester fee to help pay for a new $45 million dollar recreation center on the Highland Heights campus.
Students from Ohio on the Metro-area tuition rate will see tuition rise six percent will pay $6,144 , plus the rec center fee. Indiana resident students will see their rate increase 6.31 percent to $4,248 and the fee.
The five percent tuition hike for in-state residents is the maximum allowed under state law.
