The MAROON Loyola University, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 February 15,1985 Vol. 63, No. 17 Tuition to rise 10 percent in '85-'B6 By Keith Magill Assistant News Editor Loyola undergraduate tuition will increase by $438 next year to help support rising educational and general expenses, Dr. Norman Roussell, chairman of the University Budget Committee, said. The increase will also offset stabalized income from the Loyolaowned WWL radio and television stations, which has helped pay a portion of the university's expenses for more than 10 years, Roussell said. Tuition increases were released last week by John L. Eckholdt, vice president for Business and Finance, through University Relations. Eckholdt was not available for comment. »Yearly tuition is now $4,390, but will increase by about 9.9 percent to $4,828 for the 1985-86 academic year. In addition, City College tuition will increase next year by about 6 percent, to $90 per credit hour; law school tuition will increase by about 10.5 percent, to $210 per credit hour. Summer school tuition will increase by about 9 percent, to $120 per credit hour, and graduate tuition will be raised about 10 percent, to $182 per credit hour. University Center fees will also increase next year to $40 per semester for full-time students, $23 for parttime students and $10 for summer students. Residence hall room rates will also increase next year by an average of 9 percent. A double room will cost $964 per semester in Buddig Hall and $918 in Biever Hall. Eckholdt did not release any other definite room rates, but Robert Reed, director of Residential Life, said a double room in Cabra Hall or Fields Hall will cost $990 next semester. Other room rates were not yet available, he said. Roussell said the money generated by the tuition increases will offset the rising costs of faculty salaries and benefits, research, student services, library staff, books and equipment, scholarships and fellowships and public service groups such as the Loyola University Community Action Program and the Institute for Human Relations. He said the cost of educational goods and services increased by about 7 percent during the past year. Though educational costs have risen, the percentage of Loyola's educational and general expenses paid by students has remained relatively constant during the past five years, Roussell said. Tuition and fees accounted for 59.1 percent of Loyola's educational and general expenses in 1980, compared with an unaudited 58.6 percent in 1984, he said. Most of the remaining expenses are supported by endowment income, Roussell said. "In effect, every student that is educated at Loyola is subsidized by revenue from the endowment," he said.

Lewis Lawyer questions new PKT policy By Rene Sanchez News Editor Loyola is "treading on dangerous ground" with its decision to deny all university-funded financial aid to members of the former Pi Kappa Theta fraternity who identify themselves with the organization, the attorney hired to represent PKT said. William P. Quigley, general counselor for the state division of the American Civil Liberties Union, was hired last week to research the legality of Loyola's new policy on PKT. Quigley said he was hired by students who wish to remain anonymous. The Rev. James C. Carter, S.J., university president, set the new policy in a memorandum dated Jan. 28 to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. "I have decided that no member who identifies himself, or is any other way identified, as a member of PKT is to receive Loyola-funded student financial aid," Carter's memo said. But Quigley said his research indicates that such an action would create obvious legal problems. Contractual obligations, constitutional rights and federal regulations of Financial aid would be violated if a member of PKT loses aid because of the new policy, he said. "I think that the action of the university not only imperils the rights of the people involved," Quigley said, "but threatens all financial aid assistance to all students." By attempting to impose unconstitutional obligations on recipients of private aid, Quigley said, the university is also imperiling students who receive federal aid. Quigley said that federal regulations of federal financial aid indicate that a university, even a private one, must treat students who receive non-federal aid in the same way as students who receive federal aid. "The law says they (the university) have to treat other aid in the same fashion," Quigley said. Carter could not be reached for comment about Quigley's remarks. But Dr. Norman Roussell, Carter's executive assistant, said that if Quigley contacts Loyola, he will be referred to the university's attorney. Any future action on the PKT policy will be handled by the university attorney, he said. "There is no reason, no clear authority for the university to take away financial aid because of who a person's friends are or what kind of Tshirt he wears," Quigley said. Aside from federal aid regulations, Quigley said Carter's decision is a violation of contractual obligations. He said one party to a contract cannot create additional obligations to the contract once it is in effect. The new policy also violates a person's constitutional rights, Quigley See Tuition/page 4 See PKT/page 3 *The Maroon' will not publish Feb. 22 because of the Mardi Gras holidays.
