Columbia Tuition Scaring Prospects Away

Tuition for Columbia’s arts degree programs has risen so high, the school is losing prospects to other universities. “Last month, several hundred graduate students in the school’s visual arts, acting, writing and filmmaking programs marched across campus, protesting a decision to raise tuition to $33,052, from $31,240, in the fall. The school plans to continue increasing tuition 5.8 percent annually.”
