U of L Panel To Consider Tuition Hike

A University of Louisville trustees committee will meet Thursday to consider a tuition hike for the 2010-2011 academic year.Spokesperson Mark Hebert says the Finance Committee will vote on a recommendation to raise undergraduate tuition by six percent, as permitted by the state Council on Postsecondary Education."What that means is that U of L's tuition for the year, next school year, would be $8,400 for an in-state Kentucky resident student who goes to U of L," he said.The committee recommendation will then be considered by the full trustee board.Hebert says the tuition hike is needed to offset continued cuts in state funding.He says U of L is also increasing the amount of financial aid available for students.
