Kent State University could be the next school to make a change to its tuition rates.
According to a release by the university, its board of trustees will meet for a special meeting Thursday morning to "consider the university's operating budget for fiscal year 2014, including tuition and fees for Fall 2013."
Kent State raised tuition by 3.5 percent last year, the maximum allowed by the state. The university also implemented an overload fee for students taking more than 17 credit hours per semester to help pay for capital improvements. That fee is set to apply to all students taking 16 or more hours starting this year.
