Tuition Pricing: An Instructional Factors Matrix Approach.
Counelis, James Steve
Two perennial problems confront nonprofit institutions. These are the pricing of services and the measuring of service effort or service productivity in objective and qualitative terms. Colleges and universities can obviously not be exempt from these problems. In this paper, the suggestion is posed that tuition pricing must be rationalized and empiricized in the university model. Hence, the attempt is to relate the instructional service character of the university to the tuition pricing structure of the school. The inadequate fit of the business model for the university has been obvious to many commentators for a long time. But principles of efficiency and effectiveness can be developed and refined for the institutions of higher learning. It is hoped that this suggestion proves to have merit. (Author/HS)
