Tuition Increases, Demand and Academic Performance. AIR 2001 Annual Forum Paper.
Abou-Sayf, Frank K.
A study of the trends related to demand and academic performance at an 11-campus higher educational system, the University of Hawaii system, was conducted over a 14-year period during which tuition increased at varying rates. The results indicate the presence of tuition-dollar thresholds that constitute the financial tolerance level beyond which demand starts to decrease. In this study, the threshold in tuition-increase tolerance levels seemed to be around $240 for the community colleges and around $750 for the senior institution. The study also identified specific and similar levels in several educational performance indicators, suggesting that performance improves as tuition increases. The relationship between demand and performance trends is discussed. (Contains 21 figures and 11 references.) (SLD)
