The Public Choice of Non-resident College Tuition Levels
This paper uses a public choice framework to analyze the choice of tuition levels charged by public institutions to nonresident students. It finds that a state's relative strength in attracting both population and students leads to higher tuitions and that large numbers of private colleges and perhaps lack of job openings lead to higher tuition for nonresidents as do small fiscal gains from high-income newcomers. No support is found for the hypotheses that high enrollment growth or costs lead to relatively poor treatment of out-of-staters. Copyright 1994 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
