    and universities continue to raise tuition way more than the rate of inflation....just keep placing the burden on the middle class until there is no more middle class...

    Agree-what is the per-hour tuition cost now?

    Re: Regents Revoke $100 Surcharge

    This is largely due to the erosion of state support for the Regents institutions by the legislature. In the 1980s, state appropriations funded 80% of general education funding at the universities. Today, it is around 40% and dropping rapidly.

    Well of course the state government can't continue funding the schools as well as they used to, you know, with all the tax cuts they have been handing out.

    Support from the state will increase this year compared to last.

    Plus inflation is negative or very low for the current period.

    6% is a large raise. Norm is 3-4% I think.

    You think wrong. Here are the percentage increases since the 1999-2000 academic year for an in-state undergrad not in business or engineers (it's higher for both of those), taken from here (http://www.ir.iastate.edu/FB09/PDF/FB09-063.pdf):

    1999 -> 2000 => 4.3%
    2000 -> 2001 => 7.2%
    2001 -> 2002 => 18.4%
    2002 -> 2003 => 17.6%
    2003 -> 2004 => 8.3%
    2004 -> 2005 => 4.0%
    2005 -> 2006 => 4.0%
    2006 -> 2007 => 5.2%
    2007 -> 2008 => 3.2%
    2008 -> 2009 => 7.4%

    the cost of education is out of control.

    So in the last decade, tuition has more than doubled. Averages out to a 7.8% increase per year.

    Those numbers make me sick. I'm going to be deeper in debt by the time I graduate than my parents were after they bought their first house.

    Re: Regents Revoke $100 Surcharge

    I think with numbers like that you are really going to change the face of higher education. For a lot of people, college will no longer pay. When you consider how much you give up in terms of opportunity costs combined with the debt you rack up in school, it may not payoff for some people. For fields like engineering or comp sci where the pay is good and the degree is a must to crack into the field, it probably still makes sense, but for others maybe not so much. Will it really be worth it to go spend 4 or 5 years getting a BS is sociology or something just so you can end up with some desk job at an insurance company?

    I only wish my salary was increasing at the same rate as college tuition...

    Re: Regents Revoke $100 Surcharge

    What you are going to start seeing is high school graduates go straight to the work force for a few years and then go to college. That or a drastic reduction in the percentage of students who continue on to college. The hypocrisy in government about the emphasis on post secondary education is disgusting. How is going possible when no one can afford it anymore? With this continuing trend China and India will pass us up as top world powers no doubt about it. The american collegiate system needs more support from the top...end of story

    How long before ISU will be a private school? To be fair, ISU's been putting up buildings and dorms pretty quickly. I guess they could have stopped this and you could still be sitting in the old wooden chairs in Physics. Just like athletics, competition is raising the price to play.

    Re: Regents Revoke $100 Surcharge

    With the increase of tuition, what you may see more people doing is going to community college and then transferring to a university. I was a TA in the Computer Science department and I was talking to one of the sectaries there and she said that their department is changing focus by getting the community college kids rather than the high school kids.
