Fees out­weigh state funds

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

The ma­jor­ity of US states now rely more heav­ily on tu­ition fees than on gov­ern­ment ap­pro­pri­a­tions to fund their public univer­sity sys­tems, fig­ures have re­vealed. In 28 states, more than 50 per cent of to­tal ed­u­ca­tional rev­enues came from tu­ition in 2016-17, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from the State Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cers As­so­ci­a­tion. It marks the first time that more than half of states re­lied more on tu­ition than on gov­ern­ment ap­pro­pri­a­tions to fi­nance their higher ed­u­ca­tion sys­tems; 25 states did so in 2015-16.
