It's going to get a little more expensive to go to college in Kansas. The Kansas Board of Regents yesterday approved an increase in room and board costs at the state's six public universities.

The University of Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State universities will implement the changes in July. The remaining schools up their rates next fall. The increases range from a low of 3.4 percent at Wichita State to a high of 6.5 percent at Pittsburg State University.

The University of Kansas will continue to have the most expensive plan, with its average rate increasing 5.1 percent to more than $6,800 a year. Some regents voted against the changes, saying it wasn't right
to raise prices during a struggling economy.
