Tuition Policy in Public Higher Education. Financing Higher Education, No. 27.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The role of tuition in financing public higher education in several southern states is examined. Several problem areas are addressed: how tuition levels are established and what rationales exist for the various charges; the contribution made by tuition when compared to other sources of revenue; and the essential elements of a statewide study of tuition and tuition policy. It is shown that the historical pattern of tuition has resulted in inequities between types of institutions, between levels of instruction, between full- and part-time students, and between in-state and out-of-state tuition. Financial aid is also shown to affect the differential between public and private tuition. Tuition policy should be a major factor in educational goal development. (LBH)
