tuition is held below equilibrium price, then there is a possibility of certain
situations being born because of such decision will have great effect on both the
state university as well as the students themselves. The reduction of tuition means that state
universities in the short run or
instantly 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 extremely bigger, disturbing
the balance of the enrolled scholars 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 scholars to specific classes. On the other hand, students will have
difficulty taking the classes they prefer.
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 desired 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.
