Abstract: Higher education costs are rising. The literature points to varying factors for the increases: the lack of efficiency on the instructional side, the growth in administrative expenses as well as the decrease in state appropriations. But do these items impact average net price at four-year public and private not-for-profit institutions? This study looks at the relationship between average net price and these factors considering the fixed effects by state.

Keywords: average net price; instructional expenses; administrative expenses; state appropriations; four-year institutions.
