What are some reasons for the increase in college costs?

Institutions placed on the CATC highest tuition or net price list are required by the Higher Education Act of 1965 to complete the College Affordability and Transparency Form (CATEF) to explain why costs have gone up at their school, and how the rising costs could be addressed. The CATEF Summary Guide to College Costs summarizes institutions’ responses to their inclusion on the lists.
