Ti '"T f1 1 Volume 14 Number 3 THE OFFICIAL STUDENT NEWSPAPER OF THE UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE PROVOOREM Box 1009 Provo, Utah 84603 Monday, October 7, 1985 President Higbee Explains Tuition Increases by Jerrie S. Fackrell This year students are paying eight to 17 percent more in tuition than a year ago according to President J. Marvin Higbee. Higbee explained that the increase, which was set by the State Board of Regents, will make the cost for education more equal for both the full-time and the part-time students. Everyone will be paying the same amount for each credit hour taken. He called the change a linear tuition pay schedule. Last year the students could take 12 credit hours for the same price they could take 18 credit hours. Higbee said because the tuition expense will be quite a bit more for the students taking more credit hours, the school will take from two to three years to complete the linear change. The tuition money that Utah Technical College collects is turned over to the State within three days. This money is called dedicated credits or user tax. The tuition funds are placed with the rest of the state collected taxes. The legislature then determines how much money is to be allocated to each of the nine State funded colleges and universities. This money helps to pay for the schooling of Shuttle Bus Leaves The UTC Shuttle Bus is up and running again this year with only one difference.

Higbee said that even with the raise in tuitions, neither the resident nor the non-resident students are paying 100 percent of their education. "It costs up to $2,500 a year to educate each student," he said. "Even with the raise, the resident students pay only $750 of that amount while the non-resident students pay about $2,100 a year." The resident students pay less because their parents are paying taxes designated for educational purposes. Inspite of how much it (the increased tuition) sounds like, tax payers are still paying a pretty sizable amount of the bill for each student. Higbee said the resident students in most of the state funded schools are paying about 18 percent of their educational costs. The students at UTC pay 23 percent and by the time the change is completed, they will be paying 30 percent of their educational costs. The state funds go for salaries, travel expenses, equipment, fuel, power and utilities, part of the basic operations and the majority of the supplies used in the instructional process. Construction of the buildings are funded by the various fees collected, such as the activity fee, the athletic fee and the library fee. tie will be under the direction of Campus Services.

Other lines were finally opened two days after the first quake, and one day after the second. Hall and other operators were responsible for coor- Dust said that ridership is up on the bus this year.
