      TOP STORIES:

         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02a01803.htm

      *  FUZZY MATH? An analysis suggests that the College Board's
         annual tuition projections underestimate college costs.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02a05302.htm

      *  REGULATORY SOLUTION: The U.S. Education Department may relax a
         ban on student aid for those with drug convictions.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02a03402.htm

      *  PENDING: A bill in the U.S. House of Representatives would
         rescind a law requiring the creation of a database to track
         foreign students attending American universities.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02a03401.htm

      *  LITTLE CHANGE: Average scores on the SAT and the ACT remained
         stable.

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  NET GAIN: So far, the Internet revolution at universities has
         changed student services more than it has studying, writes Sir
         John Daniel, assistant director-general for education at
         Unesco.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02b02401.htm

      *  PROMISES, PROMISES: Sure, colleges are providing the regional
         work forces for tomorrow, provided that tomorrow no one uses
         computers, balances accounts, or tries to build anything,
         writes William Wresch, associate vice chancellor for academic
         affairs at the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i02/02b01701.htm

      *  LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: To increase the flow of
         applicants, some colleges are retaining a company to map out
         promotions of their cities.
