Yale, Princeton Increase Tuition


Yale and Princeton became the most expensive schools in the Ivy League when both schools announced this week that they would raise their tuitions to $1950 a year next September.

Harvard, which last raised its tuition on 1963, has the second lowest tuition in the Ivy League. Penn's fee is $1700 and Harvard's is $1760.

Brown, Cornell, and Dartmouth charge $1800 a year, and Columbia, the last school to raise its tuition, charges $1900.

Yale increased its tuition by $150 and its room and board by $50. The total yearly charge at Yale will now be $3000. Princeton raised its tuition by $180 and its room and board by $20; its total cost will be $3020. Harvard's total charge is $2950.

Both Yale and Princeton attributed their increases to accelerating costs of operations and teaching. They said that the tuition raise would be matched with additional financial assistance for their students.
