KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tuition could soon rise at Kansas universities. This week, each school revealed its tuition and fee proposals.

At the University of Kansas in Lawrence, the school proposed 2.8 percent hike for undergraduate students. That's an additional $137.25 per semester. If the increase is approved, it would bring tuition to $5,046 per semester.

Kansas State University in Manhattan proposed a smaller increase. They would like tuition to rise 1.1 percent. That's an additional $51 per semester, bringing the total to $4,687.50.

Those numbers do not include required fees.

The Kansas Board of Regents will likely decide on the proposals next month.
