University Fee (SUF) per academic year has increased
from $1,584 in 1996/97 to $2,724 in 2006/07. Prior
to 2002/03, an increase in SUF had not occurred
since 1994/95. Further, SUF reductions of 5 percent
occurred in both 1998/99 (for undergraduates) and
1999/2000 (for all students).
The Higher Education Compact calls for undergraduate
SUF increases of 8 percent in 2006/07 and up to 10
percent through 2010/11. The following graph shows
