The Yale Tuition Postponement Seminar.
Yale Univ., New Haven, CT.
The quality of American higher education is being seriously threatened by economic pressures that are unlikely to be relieved in the near future. As undesirable as it may be, it appears that more and more of the costs of education will have to be borne by the college and university students. The Yale University Tuition Postponement Option Plan was created to help relieve both the student and the university of some of their financial problems. The central characteristic of the Yale plan is that it links the student's educational costs to his ability to pay for that education over a working career. To the extent that the burden of repayments varies with income, the Plan relieves the student borrower of the necessity to alter his work or study plans in favor of remunerative careers. The proceedings of the second seminar on the Plan are presented in this document to share with other institutions Yale's work in the development of this kind of student financing. (Author/HS)
