Princeton to Raise Tuition $100 in Fall
Spiralling costs hit another Ivy League College last night as President Harold W. Dobbs of Princeton, announced that "because of rising costs in all categories of University operation" tuition charges for the academic year will be increased from $500 to $600 dollars, starting next fall.
His announcement left Harvard the only one of the Big Three to maintain its prewar tuition rates, since Yale announced a $100 raise last January, bringing its tuition up to $600.
University officials here have assured continuance of present rates for at least another year. "I have no present intention of making any recommendations to the Corporation that would effect a change in the College for the academic year 1947-48," Provost Buck announced at the start of this term.
