Tuition and Required Fees and Room and Board Charges at Institutions of Higher Education in Pennsylvania, 1981-82.
Hottinger, Gerald W.
Data on tuition and required fees and room and board charges at Pennsylvania colleges and universities for 1981-82 are presented, along with comparative data for previous years. In general, the tuition and required fees doubled from the academic year 1972-73 to 1981-82. By category these increases ranged from a low of 82.7 percent at state-related commonwealth universities to a high of 128.5 percent at the private state-aided institutions. In many instances, tuition increases lagged behind the consumer price index by one or two years. From 1972-73 through 1981-82, combined room and board charges increased at a smaller rate than tuition and required fees. These increases ranged from 75.6 percent at the state-related commonwealth universities to 107.9 percent at the private state-aided institutions. The data are broken down by institutional type, in-state or out-of-state, and by level (undergraduate, graduate, and first-professional). Data for the specific institutions are also presented. (SW)
