One of the reasons the cost went up is what they call the "differential payment". To me it is just a way to increase tuition without calling it an increase.

I don't know the exact annual inflation rate for tuition, but I like the protection of locking it in versus the risk of a portfolio not performing at the same level. With everything else tied to marekt results, this was one portion I wanted locked in. If you project the tuition inflation rate over the next 17 years to be, say 8%, I would take the guarantee in a heartbeat.
