Overview: Tuition Deregulation
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
Prior to 2003, the Texas Legislature had the regulatory authority to set tuition rates, generally mandating that the same statutory and designated tuition rate be charged across the state. Tuition deregulation became effective September 1, 2003, and universities began increasing designated tuition in spring 2004. This article answers the following questions: (1) What other academic charges are paid by students?; (2) How much have tuition and fees increased since tuition deregulation?; (3) What financial assistance set-asides were required in HB 3015?; (4) What have universities reported on spending the additional tuition revenue?; and (5) How are universities held accountable for deregulated tuition? [Contains a chart: Academic Charges, (Tuition, Mandatory Fees, and Average College and Course Fees) Fall 2003-Fall 2008, for Resident Undergraduates at Texas Public Universities (15 SCH).]
