Measuring the Cost of a College Degree: A Case Study of a SUNY Community College
MetadataShow full item record
Romano, Richard M.; Losinger, Regina; Millard, Tim
Inspired by a Delta Cost Project White Paper, this study uses different measures of calculating the cost of a college degree at an up‐state community college in New York. Departmental cost per credit hour, direct instructional costs, and full costs are calculated and compared. A transcript analysis of the 2008‐09 graduates highlights excess credit hours taken and cross‐subsidies necessary within degree programs to produce these graduates.
