LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The class of 2013 now has their diplomas and a near record number of Kentucky college students are getting their degrees.

The Kentucky Council on Post-secondary Education estimates that more than 61,000 students are graduating from the state's public and independent colleges and universities in 2013.

That number includes degrees at the associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.

The council says the rising number of college degrees makes Kentucky more competitive when it comes to luring jobs.
