Consider this: A state university receives a certain amount of money from the state for every enrolled student. You are worth a certain dollar amount to the university. If you are a Ph.D. student, you are worth more than a master's student, who is worth more than a senior, and so on.

students. That is the most ideal explanation, but others exist. The more
students the school admits, the more state and individual dollars it deposits.
