Officials at Miami University of Ohio in Oxford are proposing scrapping the public university's reduced in-state tuition and charging the same amount to both residents and out-of-state students. The change would more than double the current in-state tuition, from $7,600 to $16,300. Ohio residents would be offered scholarships to offset the higher cost. Low-income families would be eligible for additional aid. The university has about 15,000 undergraduate students.

It looks like tuition. It fits the definition of tuition. And to the university students or their families who pay it, it certainly feels like tuition. Yet the state of California steadfastly refuses to use the dreaded "T" word to describe the thousands of dollars it charges residents to attend University of California or the California State University campuses. By law, these charges are merely "fees." This may seem like a silly little word game, but it is not.

Israeli Arab university students boycotted classes, and hundreds of their Jewish peers protested Monday in several cities over what they termed a blatantly discriminatory government decision to charge a 50% tuition premium to students who are not veterans of the armed forces. Although the move could affect thousands of Jewish students, it is considered a particular hardship on about 4,000 Arab students who are exempt from compulsory military service on security grounds.
