TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Some public university students in Kansas would see tuition increase by almost 9 percent this fall under proposals being considered by the state Board of Regents.

The regents expected to vote Wednesday afternoon on new tuition rates proposed by the universities. The changes would raise an additional $34 million during the fiscal year beginning in July.

The increases would partially offset cuts in state funding approved this year by legislators while allowing for faculty salary increases.

Out-of-state graduate students at Emporia State University would see the biggest increase at 8.8 percent. The smallest increase, 3 percent, would be for out-of-state veterinary medical students at Kansas State University.

For undergraduates from Kansas, tuition would rise 7 percent at Kansas State and slightly less than 5 percent at the University of Kansas.
