Abstract
In order to draw lessons from the experience of multi-channel funds raised by high-level private universities in the United States, promote the healthy development of private universities in China, and use literature research and comparative research methods to study the composition of tuition fees and the mechanism of tuition increase in high-level private universities in the United States. The study found that the funding for running high-level private universities in the United States is mainly composed of tuition fees, government funding, donation income, and school investment operating income. Tuition income generally accounts for 30% to 40% of the total annual funding; the tuition fees of high-level private universities in the US are generally high. In public universities, the increase in tuition fees is 2 to 3 percentage points higher than the average growth rate of consumer prices. The conclusion of the study is that the pressure for increasing the cost of running a school is the mechanism for inducing the increase of tuition fees. The school board has the authority to approve the tuition fees as a decision-making mechanism for the increase of tuition fees. The examination of the Higher Education Commission is an examination and approval mechanism for the increase of tuition fees. This conclusion has important theoretical guidance significance and realistic reference value for Chinese private universities to open up diversified financing channels.
