A Lack of Tuition Strategy
Inside Higher Ed
Determining tuition for public institutions is a complex process that involves balancing state funding with student needs. According to a new report by the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO), most states don’t have one unified strategy for addressing affordability. “SHEEO found that 68 percent of higher education agencies it surveyed had no unified affordability strategy taking tuition, fees and financial aid into account,” Inside Higher Ed explains. Some experts are calling for a coordinated approach to allow institutions and students to plan for rising costs.
