Zheng, Yan; Hix, Dan
State Council of Higher Education for Virginia
The Commonwealth of Virginia, like the rest of the nation, has endured the effects of an historical economic recession for the past three years. While Virginia is perhaps no longer in recession, the still fragile economy is a major cause for concern. Shrinking tax revenues and the need to balance the state's budget led the 2010 General Assembly to reduce state support for public higher education by more than $400 million or 27% by FY2012 when compared to the original FY2010 budgets. Higher education institutions are facing great pressure to increase tuition in an attempt to bolster the system from the erosion of state support and ensure the delivery of high quality instructional services expected of Virginia colleges and universities. This report focuses on tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates and provides a summary of: (1) board-approved tuition and fee increases for the 2010-11 academic year; (2) tuition and fee trends in Virginia over the past 25 years; (3) the cost-sharing relationship between the state and students; and (4) trends in tuition increases nationally. The appendices provide comparisons of changes in tuition and fees for student groups, including in-state undergraduate, out-of-state undergraduate, in-state graduate, out-of-state graduate, in-state first professional, and out-of-state first professional. Appended are: (1) Tuition Policy; (2) 2010-11 Full-Time, In-State, Undergraduate Student Charges; (3) 2009-11 Full-Time Undergraduate Mandatory Non-Educational and General Fees; (4) 2009-11 Full-Time Student Charges, by Student Residency and Program Level; and (5) Tuition and Fees in Selected States, by Institution Type.
