Higher education tuition, fees, room and board, is an interesting case study in price discrimination. That said, there is a constant complaint by some in higher education that students take too long to finish school. I am sure part of the trend of taking longer to finish school has to do with the pricing of higher education. I wonder if flat-rate tuition would help mitigate the problem of the "professional student" while introducing other, unintended, consequences?

We have something like a flat-rate system at VMI. It works pretty poorly. The administration recently put a cap on the total quantity of hours a student can take, eschewing what I think is the obvious solution of charging for each credit unit above a "normal load".Post a Comment
