Assessing the Effects of Changes in the Cost of Higher Education to the Student.
Dyer, James S.
This paper presents a methodology for the analysis of the effects of changes in the cost of higher education to the student. It considers first the importance of the cost in higher education in determining whether or not a potential, qualified student will actually enroll. Methods are then illustrated for estimating the student's ability to pay and the cost of higher education to the student. Comparisons of the ability to pay and the cost factors provide estimates of the percentage of potential students who are effectively "priced out" of higher education. This approach may be used by public or private institutions to study proposed changes in tuition or scholarship policies. The techniques can also be applied to the analysis of the problem of whether to expand existing physical facilities to provide for growing enrollments, or establish new institutions in heavily populated urban centers.
