Students and States Near a 50-50 Split on the Cost of Public Higher Education

Public higher education is about to cross a historic threshold, in which students pay a higher percentage than do states of the operating costs of colleges.

Net tuition revenue made up 47 percent of public colleges’ educational costs in 2012, an increase of more than six percentage points from the previous year, according to an annual report from the State Higher Education Executive Officers.

In 1987, the report says, net tuition revenue accounted for just 23 percent of those costs. In 2001 tuition was a little more than a third of the costs.
