revolver to attract and retain students in the middle of a historic health crisis, many universities across the country or low tuition and fees frozen for the present academic year 2020-21.

The average adhesive price, however, increased public and private institutions, two years and four years. But the increases were historically low, according to the latest trends in the College Board in College Pricing and Student Aid Report, released today.

public media, four years in the rates enrollment status, and the average tuition fees at private four-year institutions, non-profit, saw its lowest percentages increases of 30 years before adjusting for inflation, said Jennifer Ma, policy research scientist at the College Board and co-author of the report.

"This year we are seeing a record number of schools freezing or reduction of tuition," he said. "I've been working on this report since 2007, and I've never seen so many schools tuition freeze."

The average sticker price for two years of college tuition was frozen within the district in 14 states. The average price published public, four-year colleges for students in the state was frozen in 10 states, according to the report.

However, the average tuition and fees marked up nationwide this fall, as they have for years. Price tag full-time undergraduate report shows the average for all institutional types increased between 0.9 percent - for the public, four years out of state tuition - and 2.1 percent before adjusting inflation

. average published tuition and fees within the district for the 2020-21 academic year at universities, public two years is $ 3,770, which is $ 70 higher than in 2019-20. Public media, the rate of four years in the state is $ 10,560 this academic year, $ 120 higher than in 2019-20. For students from outside the state, average tuition and fees were $ 27,020, $ 250 jump from the last academic year. In private universities nonprofit four-year, tuition and fees average listed a total of $ 37,650, an increase of more than $ 700 more than the previous year.

The experts can not point to a single reason why college is becoming considerably more expensive. Some highlights new universities offer facilities to attract students - see: climbing walls, lazy rivers - while others say it is to compensate for falls and meager increases in funding public education. Still others believe that it is administrative unit obesity and schools to increase higher to attract faculty members and administrators talented wages.

Beth Akers, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, has argued that the prices of college is not transparent in the same way as the price for most goods and services. This allows institutions to increase their prices routinely face sentences and a consumer. It is true that comparison shopping is practically impossible.

"We know that many students do not understand how the pricing works. are they not realize how much they are paying or how much you are borrowing, "Akers said. "That inefficiency in the market may allow institutions to get away with increasing prices year after year, while if people were more familiar with what the expenses are paid and have a better sense of the value actually they were coming out of that purchase, we will probably see that the inflation rate will begin to decline. "

we compared the selection of a university looking for a house.

"It would be as if you were shopping for a house, and had to apply and be approved for a mortgage before you tell me how much it costs home," Akers said.
