Smaller campuses with more flexible admission objectives saw the greatest jumps in tuition, with Prairie View A&M University and the University of Texas at Dallas both going over 500 percent in increases over the last 25 years. Schools say maintaining control of tuition allows campuses to maintain quality and comparability with peer institutions, but lawmakers say schools aren’t operating with affordability for families as a priority.
