WKU Committee Approves Tuition Hike

The finance and budget committee of Western Kentucky University’s Board of Regents had a special meeting Friday, when it approved a 2012-13 operating budget that includes a 4.8 percent tuition increase. Pending approval by the full board at the June 22 meeting, the university will have a total operating budget of $388,597,000 for the 2012-13 fiscal year. That’s an increase of about $3.5 million, or 0.9 percent, from the current year’s budget.
