Randall Jeppesen reportingStudents at the University of Utah graduate today, but do the students feel they got their money's worth?

When comparing tuition costs with the quality of classes you get, one U graduate we talked to says it depends: for general classes, not so much. "I also thought that the upper division classes were definitely worth what I paid," she said.

She says the tuition increases weren't fun, but she and the other grads we spoke with say overall, the money was well spent.

But a national report from the Delta Cost Project is skeptical of college tuition's increases around the country. The report says the number of students getting their degrees is not keeping up with rising tuition costs.
