Voting Rights and the Nonresident Student.
Carbone, Robert F.
The recent decision in most states concerning the voting rights of out-of-state students may have severe financial implications for public higher education institutions. Students are claiming that if they are registered to vote in their college's state, they are legal residents of the state and thus should not be charged out-of-state tuition at state colleges. If this point of view is upheld by the courts, it is estimated that institutional income would drop somewhere between $250 to $300 million a year. It is projected that this would result in the raising of all tuitions to make up the difference, which would in turn result in the abolition of the low tuition principle upon which public higher education in America has been built.
