Colleges Hike Tuition, Slash Classroom Instruction

Universities defend price hikes even as they move to online classrooms

Colleges are hiking the price of tuition and living fees despite a decrease in classroom learning and student services. The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), New York University, the University of Southern California (USC), and Indiana University are among several universities raising tuition and other fees in the upcoming academic year. These institutions will raise the cost of tuition and living expenses by an average of $1,511 while minimizing services, amenities, and in-person classroom learning.
