Description

This paper investigates the effect of changes in the net tuition price on the probability of enrollment for students admitted to Linfield College. Our sample data was provided by the Linfield College Office of Institutional Research for the 2015-2016 through the 2017-2018 academic years. A logit (logistic) model is used to determine how the probability of enrollment is affected by the net tuition price controlling for academic achievement, student demographics, and the year of admittance. Given these controls, we find that a 1% increase in the net tuition price decreases the probability that an admitted student will enroll by about 29%.
