Tuition Increases

Postby Lermontov » Wed Apr 14, 2010 4:12 pm

Just curious if other people have looked into how much a school raises tuition each year in calculating expenses. I see a ~3.5% tuition/fees increase per year, but only based on the two schools I've been able to get enough info on (basically, wanting at least three years' numbers in order to compare).

Anyone else seen differently, or seen the same, especially for T14ish schools?

Just a bump. No one else thinking about the extra ~7k that this may result in once interest factors in?

I think about it. My list is down to two schools, both who've had 3-4k bump over the last few years. Yikes. Seems like you should be able to lock in a price, like a cable bill. I'm taking a trip to one of my schools next week and I plan on asking them about this. Makes it hard to budget.
