Effects Of Tuition Increases On Racial/Ethnic Diversity At Public Institutions

Results of a study suggest that tuition increases at open-access, non-selective public four-year institutions are associated negatively and significantly with the racial/ethnic diversity of enrolled students. This same negative relationship can be seen among two-year public institutions. The effects are more pronounced in full-time, first-time freshmen as compared to the overall full-time campus population.
