The Tuition-Reset Strategy
Inside Higher Ed
Affordability is a main concern of today’s college students, especially adult learners. In response, many institutions are choosing to cut their tuition costs in hopes of attracting more learners. While this may seem detrimental to the overall financial success of schools, institutions adopt this strategy as a way to “raise the overall amount of tuition money they collect,” Inside Higher Ed explains. While tuition resets are mostly taking place at colleges that enroll under 5,000 students, lost revenue remains an issue. Critics say it doesn’t eliminate the flaws of pricing models in higher education.
