University of Louisville tuition to increase again

Tuition rates in Kentucky are set to rise. The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education has approved tuition increases ranging from $180 to $618 dollars for public universities. Effective beginning with the 2007-2008 academic year, the increases will affect several institutions, including the University of Louisville. The college's trustees have approved a 9.9% tuition hike. This raises tuition for in-state undergraduates by $309 per semester, to $3,435. The increase will help the university hire new faculty members, augment scholarships, improve academic programs, and account for increasing health-insurance and utility expenses.
