Why not "truth in tuition" just as there's truth in lending? I remember what a rude surprise those fees were when I came to UH. I felt deceived. I wouldn't have changed my choice, the private school I had gone to in Boston was still far more expensive but also offset by a hefty scholarship. That cost advantage is growing less and less by the year.

So far Lynden Rose is the only regent NOT to buy the party line that higher costs always translate into a better school, more valuable degree, etc. I strongly suspect this precious logic is dead wrong - the marginal benefit to the school is almost certainly outweighed by the marginal cost to students who have substantially less flexibility to come up with the cash. We could use more regents who stand up for student interests. Sometimes a hike is necessary but EVERY year since deregulation?

I love UH and the education I've received there but the manner in they and the legislature have approached tuition hikes is underhanded (legislative deregulation and fee padding) and contributes to distrust and cynicism among the student body.
