NKU Raises Tuition

(HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY) -- Northern Kentucky University students learned a hard lesson on Wednesday. There's going to be another tuition hike.

Undergrads at NKU will have to pay almost 10 percent more per credit hour, beginning next fall.

NKU president James Votruba blamed state budget cuts.

"It's easy from a political standpoint to say there should be no tuition increase or it should only be the cost of living. But the reality is you have to look at the whole picture. What's going to happen if it goes up and what's going to happen if it doesn't go up?" said Votruba.

Votruba cautioned students and staff that there could be even less funding from the state of Kentucky.
