Graduate studies courses will run $165 per credit hour. The Loyola School of Law will raise its tuition $760 to $5,660 per year. Eckholdt would not grant an interview, but in a written response to questions submitted by The Maroon, Eckholdt said, "The primary reason for the increase was to maintain a competitive advantage insofar as faculty and other salaries are concerned."He added, "We are committed to attracting outstanding faculty and we believe this can only be accomplished by having competitive salaries." As a result of thp tuition increases, Raising faculty salaries to remain competitve with other colleges is the main reason for next year's $440 tuition increase, according to John L. Eckholdt, vice president for business and finance. Undergraduate tuition will increase 11.1 percent to $4,390 for the 1984-85 school year. Tuition is currently $3,950 per year. Other tuition increases were also announced earlier this month. Classes taken in the City College will now cost $85 per credit hour and the summer session courses will cost $110 per credit Eckholdt said, students receiving financial aid will receive increases in that aid. "In fact, the rate"of increase in financial aid is considerably higher than the rate of increase in tuition," he said. Dr. E.P. Seybold, director of Scholarships and Financial Aid, said he expects some students who have never before filed for financial aid to apply because of the tuition increase. However he does not predict a dramatic increase in students eligible for aid. "I do not predict a substantial change in students being eligible for financial aid," Seybold said. Eckholdt also explained residence hall fee increases. "The residence halls are increasing 12 percent in order to maintain our policy that the expenses of operating Tuition Rates Students give opinions on tuition rate increase By Bettina Buval Many students are concerned about how they will offset next year's tuition increases according to an informal survey conducted by The Maroon this week. John L. Eckholdt, vice president for Business and Finance, announced an increase in tuition for the 1984-85 school year. Undergraduates will face an 11.1 percent hike which amounts to $440 and increases tuition to $4,390. Increases will be felt throughout the university. Bryan Foley, psychology junior said, "The increase will affect my parents mainly, because they work and help pay my tuition. I guess the increase will mean that any extra money will be cut out for them; or else I would have to get money during the summer to help pay the tuition. My father is retiring, so money will be cut down from now on." "I'll have to get a job, much as I wouldn't like to, because it would affect my grades," Kelvin Jackson, political science sophomore, said. "The only other choice would be to take out another loan. I was planning to come to Loyola for summer school, but now I don't know. I might just work," he said. Suzzette Herndon, a drama senior, said the increase in tuition would not affect her drastically. "I plan to get a summer job and save up the money I might need. The increase in residence hall rates is going to hit people on campus the most. With the increase, it's going to make things a lot more expensive. In fact, it might be cheaper to live off campus than on campus and just pay tuition," she said.
