Undergraduate students at Northern Kentucky University who are Kentucky residents will see their tuition increase by 2.7 percent in the 2013-2014 academic year.
Graduate students from Kentucky will see a 9.3 percent tuition hike, while graduate students from Ohio and Indiana will see their tuition go up by 9.4 percent.
NKU’s board of regents approved the increase Wednesday by a unanimous vote. It will mean a $9 per credit hour tuition hike for resident undergraduates. Their tuition will jump from $328 to $337.
Despite initially saying otherwise, Northern Kentucky University now says former Athletic Director Scott Eaton did improperly divert university funds for personal reasons.
Eaton was fired in March for having inappropriate relationships with four university employees and a student.
