Why is the percentage increase of tuition for in-state residents attending Kansas University so much more than the increase for out-of-state students?
Although the percentage increase for resident students is greater than that for out-of-state students, the dollar increase for nonresidents actually is greater. That's because out-of-state students already pay $3,463.50 more per semester than Kansas residents.
KU's proposal, which will be considered by the Board of Regents in June, would increase resident undergraduate tuition rates $294, or 25.2 percent, this fall. The increase would be $432, or 9.3 percent, for nonresidents.
