There is a lack of a cost constraint mechanism in the current higher education tuition pricing system of our country. The “one size fits all” tuition standard fails to reflect the revenue law and the burden ability problems. First, according to the recent higher education tuition fees data related to quantitative analysis of higher education of our country’s college tuition situation, and the comprehensive evaluation of higher education tuition standards is given. Then, the game theory is used to seek higher education fees into the game of students, universities, and the government to achieve a balance of interests. Finally, a single target linear optimization model was established, as the university satisfaction index for target function, two game matrix as constraint conditions.
