State university students could see their tuition and fees rise by as much as 5.7 percent this fall under proposals before the Kansas Board of Regents.

The board was considering proposals Wednesday afternoon from the six state universities and the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.

The proposed increases in tuition and fees would provide almost $29 million in additional revenues for the universities. The largest is a proposed 5.7 percent increase for in-state undergraduate students at Kansas State University’s campus in Salina.

In-state undergraduates at Kansas State’s main campus in Manhattan would see an increase of 5.2 percent. At the University of Kansas, the most popular option for tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates would be 3.4 percent higher.
