Tuition is an important factor for understanding the economic behavior of private colleges and universities in Japan. As the market in which universities compete one another is highly segmented and specialized, it is difficult to find a general axiom for setting the tuition levels. Analysis on tuition at private institutions for academic year 1991-1992 suggests that there are several patterns in the economic behavior of Japan's private universities, and that the behavioral patterns and tuition levels are substantially influenced by the competence or position at the higher education market.
