Higher Education in Texas: Student Aid and Governance. Working Paper.
Tolo, Kenneth W.
Current issues facing higher education in Texas are examined with an emphasis on student financial aid programs and governance. The formal organizational structure and the responsibilities of the major governmental units are described, and the role played by state government in higher education through its tuition policies and its student aid policies and programs is considered. Because the various state programs vary significantly in scope, eligibility, and funding levels, each program (and its effects on access and choice) are considered separately. An overview of student costs, tuition and required fees in public and private institutions, and federal and state student aid programs is presented. The processes by which the state government seeks to control program development and finance is discussed with attention to the role of the Coordinating Board. The following areas are covered: designation of funding formulas, administrative procedures in formula development, characteristics of formulas, institutional budget development, state budget office reviews, appropriations bills, state control of nonappropriated funds, and institutional governing boards. Current and emerging policy issues are discussed in the context of the changing Texas political environment. (SW)
