Tuition Changes In Pa

10.17.13 | Bob Price

Just 16 days on the job and the Chancellor of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has already floated a radical new idea ....why not charge different tuitions for different majors at the 14 state-owned schools ?  Frank Brogan says flexible tuition rates could help financially challenged universities generate revenue.  Brogan has appointed a task force to look into the feasibility of such a plan.  They will report back to him in the spring.  Penn State, Pitt and Temple already have varying tuition rates dependent on a student’s major.   The 14 state universities charge a flat tuition model where all undergraduate students pay the same rate, which is currently $6,622 a year.
