USC is increasing tuition again.
Here’s an announcement from Provost Charles F. Zukoski:
“After careful consideration, the USC Board of Trustees has approved a 2 percent tuition increase for the 2021-2022 academic year, the lowest year-over-year increment since 1967 and in line with inflation.”
This tuition increase has to gall students, who just paid full tuition (including an increase) in 2020-21 for a year of online classes.
USC doesn’t mention it saved some money in the remote environment by not having to operate huge aspects of campus: class buildings, student housing, parking, etc.
If someone asked, they would probably say, “that’s why we only raised your tuition 2 percent!”
