WSJ: UH Tuition Increases at 2nd Fastest Rate in Nation
The University of Hawaii is number two in the nation when it comes to tuition increases. Falling just short of #1 University of Arizona, UH boosted its annual bite on students 108% between the 2006-07 academic year and the current 2012-13 academic year. Formerly $4522, tuition now runs $9404.
The average university boosted tuition 8.3% last year.
The cost of attending public colleges is rising faster than the cost of private colleges, as states reduce funding. The WSJ compares the published tuition and fees for state residents in 2012-13, and in 2006-07, for 72 public universities with substantial research activity, including many state “flagship” schools.
Totals do not include room, board, books and other expenses, or the effects of financial aid, which is available to many students. Totals are for entering freshmen in the general program. For universities with more than one campus, all figures are for the main campus.
