FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Council on Postsecondary Education has capped tuition increases at public colleges and universities at 3 percent.
The cap applies to in-state undergraduate students for the upcoming school year.
A statement from the council says it is the smallest average tuition increase for Kentucky public institutions in more than a decade.
Council President Bob King said the board felt that tuition increases should be kept "as minimal as possible" given the "challenging economic environment" that students are facing.
