As the government spends increasingly less on student financial aid, many leading colleges and universities are using a greater percentage of tuition revenues for scholarships. Just as tax breaks are given for charitable contributions, this portion of tuition should be tax deductible. Statistics compiled by the Consortium on Financing Higher Education, which does research and analysis for 32 member colleges, show the growing importance of tuition income for supporting scholarships.

Temple University's continued financial problems may force the school to increase tuition by $402 this year, university sources said yesterday. The university's 36-member board of trustees is expected to approve the proposed 9.5 percent increase this afternoon, after it votes to adopt the school's $708 million operating budget, the sources said. Tuition has already been raised by 7 percent for the second summer semester, which begins July 8, according to the sources. The increase will raise next year's tuition from $4,234 to $4,636.

Beginning next fall, Temple University will allow students to pay tuition and dormitory charges in 10 monthly installments each year, with no interest or finance charges other than an annual $40 fee to cover administrative costs. Temple President Peter J. Liacouras said the new program - the Temple University Installment Payment Plan, or TIPP - would provide the school's 31,100 full- and part-time students with "a convenience in budgeting cash flow," rather than direct financial aid. "TIPP is an option that our working students and their parents can use to help pay for an education at Temple," Liacouras said.

IT'S NOT NEWS that the cost of a college degree has risen significantly over the last couple of decades. Since 1990, tuition and fees have risen by nearly 225 percent at four-year public colleges and by 154 percent at private four-year colleges. The real story is that tuition growth rates often fluctuate wildly from year to year - which makes it hard for families to plan ahead and budget enough to cover the costs. Last year, students at Villanova faced an unexpected tuition and fee increase that was double the previous year's.

During the war in the Persian Gulf, Goddard Early Learning Centers have cut tuition in half for any family whose mother or father is serving in the gulf. President Joseph A. Scandone said the tuition reduction was to help alleviate additional stress for families. For Sue Donnelly, who is living in Berwyn, the reduced tuition helped make it possible for her 3-year-old son, Jamie, to attend the Malvern school. Donnelly's husband, Pat, was sent to Saudia Arabia on Aug. 29. Donnelly said that she and her family had been living at Hunter Airfield in Stewart, Ga., but that after her husband was activated, she and Jamie returned to the area to live with her father.

Peter Ciotoli is glad to be moving his family back into the area, but he didn't exactly get the welcome he had hoped for from the Downingtown school board. Five years ago, Ciotoli's job with a local environmental consulting firm transferred him to Virginia. Now, that job has transferred him back. As the Ciotoli family awaited completion of a house being built in West Bradford, the only home Ciotoli could find to lease in the interim was in Exton, which lies within the West Chester Area School District.

Rutgers University in-state undergraduates will pay more in tuition and fees next school year, but the increase is among the smallest in 25 years. The school's Board of Governors adopted a $3.9 billion budget for the 2016-17 school year on Wednesday that includes a 1.7 percent increase in tuition and fees, the least since the 2011-12 school year, when they rose 1.55 percent . These are the only two years since at least 1991 that the increase has been under 2 percent.

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's board of governors on Thursday approved a $178 tuition increase for state universities this fall - the smallest hike in nine years. Full-time in-state students will pay a base tuition rate of $7,238 a year for the 2016-17 academic year, up from $7,060 last year. Holding the increase to 2.5 percent increase was possible because the state-supported universities have cut nearly $300 million from their expenditures over the last decade, said Kenn Marshall, system spokesman.

Temple University trustees unanimously approved a 2.8 percent increase in base tuition for undergraduate students at Tuesday's meeting. The board also approved eliminating upper-level tuition rates, which require upperclassmen to pay a higher rate than sophomores and freshmen. "After re-examining that policy, the board kind of pivoted and saw that as an obstacle for persistance and for kids to graduate in four years," said Ken Kaiser, Temple's chief financial officer. The board also approved an additional $250,000 to be spent studying the feasibility of a proposed football stadium on campus, bringing the total funding to $1.5 million.

Following an extraordinary spurt in freshman enrollment, Pennsylvania State University expects to admit fewer students next spring. That means getting in could be harder. "I am sure we will probably shoot for a target that is a lower number," said Clark Brigger, executive director of undergraduate admissions. Penn State accepted 57 percent of applicants to its main campus in State College for fall 2016 - up from 51 percent the year before. Officials were trying to attract a larger class this spring than the previous year, but not as large as they ended up getting, Brigger said.

Question: I'm nearly 22 and will begin my senior year of college this fall. I recently moved back in with my parents for the summer and was lucky enough to be offered a summer job that is related to my field and that would be a great resume-builder for me. The job is an hour and a half away from my parents' house, so I planned on moving in with my boyfriend of 21/2 years, who lives in that area. My parents do not approve. My parents have supported me 100 percent financially throughout the first three years of my college education, for which I am extremely grateful.

The criminal trial of U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah focused Tuesday on the problems of his son. A top Drexel University lobbyist, Brian T. Keech, testified about the tuition and academic woes of Chaka "Chip" Fattah Jr. that three times prompted Drexel to put him on a payment plan. The younger Fattah repeatedly stopped paying his college bills, and federal prosecutors allege that his father solved the problem by stealing from his campaign fund to pay Drexel. Chip Fattah's tuition became a headache for the lobbyist when the younger Fattah came to him after Drexel barred him from attending classes because of $30,000 in unpaid tuition.

As financial pressures mount on community colleges, some schools have begun to openly compete: crossing county lines and marketing to a wider pool of students. In South Jersey, Camden County College has frozen its tuition and mandatory fees for a second year in part because nearby schools remain less expensive. Community colleges in Burlington and Gloucester Counties are aggressively marketing their partnerships with Rowan University to students throughout the region. Driving increased competition are several long-term factors: fewer high school graduates, flat or falling enrollment, and reduction in state funding.

Since 2008, state funding for higher education has eroded significantly across the country, and Pennsylvania has been one of the hardest-hit states, says a new report being released Thursday. State funding per student for public colleges and universities in Pennsylvania is down 33 percent from 2007-08 when adjusted for inflation, according to the report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a Washington think tank. In March, the Assembly approved the first increase in higher education funding for the 14-university State System of Higher Education since 2008-09.
