Non-Resident Enrollment and Non-Resident Tuition at Land Grant Colleges and Universities
Adkisson, Richard V.; Peach, James T.
Education Economics, v16 n1 p75-88 Mar 2008
Universities around the United States are seeking ways to attract students to their institutions. One possible strategy is to compete for out-of-state students. Since an early 1970s examination of the determinants of student migration by Tuckman, there have been several subsequent studies that have either further developed the methodology of the studies or taken some different perspective on the problem. This paper differs from the existing literature in two ways. First, it focuses exclusively on land-grant institutions. Second, it uses panel data rather than just time-series or cross-sectional data. Evidence regarding the impact of historical Black college/university status and regional variations are presented as well. The evidence indicates that quality has more influence on student migration than price, indicates that historical Black college/universities attract fewer out-of-state students than other land grant institutions and indicates that there are non-specific regional differences in land grant institutions' abilities to attract migrant students. (Contains 4 tables and 2 notes.)
