This chapter examines the causes and consequences of non-resident enrollment. It explains how the share of non-residents among first-time freshmen varies at a point in time across these institutions and over time at any given institution. It employs panel data from a variety of sources and estimates a system of equations to explain the levels of state need-based grant aid per student, in-state tuition, out-of-state tuition, and the share of out-of-state students among first-time freshmen. The chapter also presents information on trends in tuition, enrollment, and grant aid. Moreover, it discusses the results of a survey that was carried out to obtain information on the nature and prevalence of tuition reciprocity agreements. Finally, the chapter describes estimation strategy, presents empirical results, and conducts some policy simulations based upon these results.
