This article describes the development and use of a simulation model designed to assist institutional policy makers in assessing a proposal to discount non-resident student tuition by offering a new institutional scholarship. The model proved to be a valuable tool for administrators in evaluating a wide range of policy alternatives, in the areas of enrollment, quality of the class, and net tuition revenue effects.
