Proposed 2013-14 tuition will advance technology, enrollment goalsJune 6, 2013
Under a tuition and fee proposal presented today by Emporia State University officials, full-time undergraduate resident students will pay an additional $171 per semester for the 2013-14 academic year. The Kansas Board of Regents received tuition and fee proposals from all state universities in a special meeting this morning in Topeka.
Under Emporia State’s proposal, undergraduate resident students taking 15 hours will pay $2,807 per semester; graduate resident students taking 12 hours will pay $3,516 per semester, an increase of $192 from the current academic year. Similar increases for non-resident and NEARR undergraduates and graduates are also recommended.
“A special note of thanks to the faculty, staff and student members of the ESU budget advisory committee for meeting throughout the Spring semester 2013 and providing recommendations that continue to support our university’s growth during our 150th year celebration,” Dr. Michael D. Shonrock, Emporia State president, said in announcing the proposal.
The proposal presented includes a recommendation to expand Emporia State’s Corky Plus undergraduate recruitment program, currently offered in five counties of Missouri, to 20 counties within Oklahoma beginning in Fall 2014.
“Our Corky Plus program has already seen double the applications from students in Missouri and doubled the number of new Missouri students enrolled at Emporia State for fall semester 2013,” Shonrock said.
The fee recommendation includes a new technology fee of $25 per semester for full-time undergraduates or $2 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate students paying by the credit hour.
“Along with our Information Technology division’s ongoing expansion of our on-campus wireless network,” Shonrock said, “the new proposed fee will provide new Cloud applications and expansion to our Skynet.”
Regents will take action on the tuition and fee proposals during their regular board meeting June 19 and 20 in Topeka.
