Vanderbilt University Weighs in on Its Controversial Compliance Costs Report

Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos earlier this year testified before a U.S. Senate committee and cited a rather compelling, if somewhat surprising, fact: the cost of complying with federal regulations “equates to approximately $11,000 in additional tuition per year” for students.

The math was simple: $146 million in compliance costs in 2013 divided by some 12,800 students equals about $11,000 per student.
