Princeton Announces $150 Tuition Increase

Tuition at Princeton will take a $150 jump in September, Harold W. Dodds, president of the university, announced over the weekend.

The hike makes Princeton the second of the Big Three to raise its costs, Yale having increased its charges $185 per year last month. Besides tuition, which will cost Tiger undergraduates $750, they will have to continue paying a $100 general fee for the library, infirmary, and athletic program.

Dodds said Princeton has been operating under a deficit this year and, without an adjustment in tuition, would go even deeper into the red next year.

Provost Buck, who predicted countrywide tuition increases early this fall, has not yet indicated conclusively whether or not the College will be able to hold the price line.
