The Costs of Higher Education to the Student and to the State at the Public Senior Colleges and Universities in South Carolina. A Study Submitted to the 1984 South Carolina General Assembly.
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Columbia.
The costs to students and to the state of South Carolina of public senior colleges and universities are considered, along with tuition and fee policies in the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states, and state support for higher education in the SREB states. Most SREB states have experienced tuition and required fee increases over the past several years. The majority of the states have attempted to control fee increases by establishing a uniform fee structure according to types of institutions. A uniform fee structure for educational and general (E&G) operations is necessary if South Carolina is to eliminate the disparity in tuition and required fees among its institutions. Five recommendations by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education to eliminate these disparities are offered. Information is included on: state appropriations per full-time-equivalent student in the SREB states, 1980-1981 to 1982-1983; faculty salary averages in the SREB states; resident, full-time undergraduate tuition and fees at selected major state universities, 1981-1982, 1983-1984; South Carolina educational appropriations, 1974, 1980, and 1983; state support for higher education in 1983-1984 dollars; fall headcount enrollments; and E&G fees as percent of total required tuition and fees.
