- A Statement of Principles and Policies
- The Massachusetts Board of Regents of Higher Education's tuition policy is designed to effectively promote rationality and equity and access, improve the margin for excellence via resources to support academic quality and institutional responsiveness, and permit greater public management accountability in public higher education. The policy builds upon one adopted by the Board in 1984 which set forth general principles but stopped short of proposing firm articulation of principle and practice. The seven basic principles that guide the Regent's tuition policy are: tuition and access; tuition and equity; tuition and partnership; tuition and margin for excellence; tuition and the recognition of complete costs; tuition and predictability; and tuition and direct benefits. The policies adopted in order to achieve the stated principles are explained under the following headings: tuition goals; other issues (cost of education, program differentials, part-time students, and out-of state, resident alien, and foreign students); tuition retention, waivers, and remission; expenditure guidelines; tuition waivers and remission programs; and college and university fees. Many of the initiatives to be undertaken as a result of these policies are new and significant departures from current practices. Therefore, a detailed policy evaluation by the chancellor is recommended. The result of the evaluation and any appropriate recommendations shall be presented to the regents. (SM)
