By institution Tuition is charged at different rates from one type of institution to the next. Net tuition indices mark an increase in the “relative real burden” for payments at various types of institutions for higher education; in the period between 1980 and 1995, for example, this burden increased by approximately 80 percent for students at public universities and by 148 percent for students at private universities.<ref>Martin, Robert E., “Why Tuition Costs Are Rising So Quickly”, Challenge, Volume 45, Number 4 (2002), pp. 88-108.

Most students and/or their families who pay for tuition and other education costs don't have enough savings to pay in full while they are in school.{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[citation needed] }} Some students must work and/or borrow money to afford an education. In the United States, student financial aid is available to defray the cost of a post-secondary education: “Financial aid is typically thought to exert the most influence in [attendance], when admitted students consider whether to enroll in a particular institution.”<ref>DesJardins, Stephen L., “Assessing the Effects of Changing Institutional Aid Policy”, Research in Higher Education, Volume 42, Number 6 (2001), pp. 653-78. (JSTOR, retrieved 13 March 2012)</ref> It is often the case that the lower the cost of the school, the more likely a student is to attend.

Developed countries have adopted a dual scheme for education: while basic (i.e. high-school) education is supported by taxes rather than tuition, higher education usually requires tuition payments and/or fees.

People may purchase tuition insurance to protect themselves from fees related to involuntary withdrawal (illness, death of a parent or guardian, etc.)
