LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) – The University of Kentucky’s tuition is increasing for the 2017-2018 school year.

Tuition will go up four percent for in-state students and six and a half percent for out-of-state students.

The UK Board of Trustees approved the increase earlier this week.

The budget also includes a salary increase for the school's faculty and staff.

The board will vote on the rest of that proposal next week.
