Recommendations on Tuition Increases and Student Aid.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This report begins with a summary of its major points which include: (1) expansion of higher education opportunities in Illinois, (2) elimination of financial problems as barriers to higher education, (3) increasing tuition only for those who can afford it, (4) increasing tuition gradually so that the impact on attendance patterns can be assessed, and (5) continually increasing tuition to approximate rising costs. Chapter I presents an overview of opinions on the role of tuition in public higher education. Chapter II examines the State's efforts to extend educational opportunity to all qualified students and reviews the number of grant recipients, institutional fees, tuition and tuition increases, and concludes that the cost of higher education is still a barrier to many young people. Recommendations are made in Chapter III. The appendix includes the reactions of the governing boards to the tuition proposals. (AF)
