Close to 500 students chanted "we will not pay" and held signs on campus to protest a new fee for credit hours.
The protestors gathered on Risman Plaza, outside the university library at KSU Thursday afternoon.
Kentwired.com reports students are upset about the new charge of $440 for each additional credit hour above 17 hours.
Meanwhile, Provost Todd Diacon sent an email to faculty stating that only 12.6 percent of students at KSU are enrolled in 18 or more credit hours.
A Change.org petition in connection with this protest has garnered about 3,700 signatures.
