Applications to Public Colleges Surge, While Private Colleges Freeze Tuition


The New York Times has an article today about the surge in applications from bargain hunting applicants.

Also today, Inside Higher Ed has posted an article about private colleges freezing, lowering, or at least drastically reducing  tuition increases in a bid to hang on to current students and attract new ones.

The down economy is making it tough for colleges and universities to plan. Their enrollment models are based on past averages and historical data. But all that past experience has to be thrown out the window.

It’s an interesting year, that’s for sure.
