tuition is held below equilibrium price, then there is a likelihood of certain
situations being born because of such decision will have great effect on both
the state university as well as the students themselves. Reduction of tuition means state
universities will inadvertently in the near future or right away will generate a
higher influx of applicants who would be attracted by the low rate of
education. Secondly, the normal space
used to educate students effectively will no longer prove to be
productive. This means that the
proportion of the classes at the universities would be much be bigger, affecting
enrolled scholar’s relations, security and their ability to learn. Thirdly, the university would have decisions
regarding staffing, expansion and resources, for example, to meet the
additional needs created if tuition is held below equilibrium price. Additionally, procedure would have to be put
in place to prevent specific classes from being over booked. On the other hand, students will have to
struggle to take the classes of their own preferences.
2. Using the above-mentioned situation,
education would not really be “equally accessible” as the rapid spike in
applicants then forces state universities to then must change the methods by
which applicants are filtered and admitted.
As an example, by increasing the grade point average which applicants
are judged, there will be some certain grades that would have been considered
suitable would now not be allowed to enroll.
Therefore, creating diversity amongst the applicants there would be some
who felt they were unjustly judged and not given a fair opportunity should
their enrollment be rejected. Also,
students who would have desires to attend a university within the state they
are originally from due to their desire of being close to home, would now have
to apply to a university which is in another state or a community institute
thus causing unexpected financial expenses to their families as well as
themselves. Another example would be
that the university’s dorm rooms, their food services programs and even the parking
lot area which are designated for both members of staff and student body will
now be strained beyond its normal threshold due to the high invasion that is
not a part of its norm.
