CUMBERLAND, Ky. (AP) -- 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 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."
