Have Federal Loans Contributed to Higher Tuition?
Hauptman, Arthur M.; Balz, Frank J.
Trusteeship, v6 n2 p16-21 Mar-Apr 1998
Presents two opinions on the effect of growing federal student loan programs on college tuition: (1) that federal loans have more than tripled as a proportion of the total cost of attendance, while tuition rates have skyrocketed, indicating a connection; and (2) that no reliable evidence shows undergraduate tuition has risen to capture more federal loans, and suggesting otherwise is irresponsible.
