Alternative Tuition Systems. ACT Special Report No. 12.
Carbone, Robert F.
As its title indicates, this report is a discussion of alternative mechanisms for handling the flow of tuition dollars from students to the public institutions of higher education they attend. It attempts, through creative thinking and expert reaction, to explore some untried administrative techniques that administrators in public institutions may find useful if future events demonstrate that some new method of assessing and collecting tuition is required. The report concentrates on five tuition models: (1) The Nonresident Student Surcharge Model; (2) The Resident Student Fee Remission Model; (3) The Sliding Scale (Multiple Criteria) Model; (4) The Sliding Scale (Single Criteria) Model; and (5) The National Tuition Bank Model. Appendixes include a multiple criterion tuition assessment model; the sliding scale cost recovery formula; residency and university admission problems in the Federal Republic of Germany, a rationale for supporting the admission of nonresident students to public colleges and universities; and nonresident tuition and constitutional law. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author/PG)
