Hello all, I recently completed my first year at a Midwestern state school. We heard rumors of tuition increase at the end of Spring semester, and recently got the bill and official notice of the tuition increase. Tuition has gone up by 40%. Anyone ever heard of this big of a tuition increase? People are not happy - obviously we're stuck between a rock and a hard place. Our class board met with the dean, nothing was resolved other than the suggestion of us receiving some type of "scholarship". That discussion was over 2 months ago before we knew exactly how much tuition would go up and he has not provided any further information regarding it. Any thoughts on what to do? Just suck it up? I would understand a small yearly tuition increase, but 42% seems ridiculous. In complete disclosure, the school I attend did have relatively cheap tuition compared to other schools, but that is the main reason a number of students chose this program -- it's not exactly known for it's great academic program. Thanks for any responses.
