Kentucky Community Colleges Raise Tuition by 2.86 Percent
CUMBERLAND — 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—which includes Jefferson Community & Technical College—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."
