Follow-up Study of Tuition and Fee Comparisons and Federal Student Financial Aid Rankings.
Washington State Council on Higher Education, Olympia.
This document is written in an attempt to clear up any confusion that exists concerning information presented on the question of tuition and fee increases. In conjunction with the certification of data, questions were asked concerning the following subjects: (1) The composition (makeup) of the total charges in terms of support for operating costs, capital expenditures, special student activitie, and services fees; (2) the extent of any differential charged to graduate students: (3) whether or not lower fees are charged to graduate students: (4) whether or not lower fees are charged to resident Vietnam veterans; and (5) plans for increasing tuition and fees for 1976-77. This survey was as extensive as possible and in the authors' opinion reflected actual practice within the respective states. It was found worthwhile to follow-up on published sources when the State of Washington ranked either exceptionally high or exceptionally low in a particular category. The council staff checked both the aid amount information and the enrollment figures. In discussions with individuals who conducted the survey and with the National Center of Education Statistics, the U.S. Office of Education, it was determined that the dollars per student were based on an erroneous enrollment count for the State of Washington. Corrected tables along with the corrected enrollment information as published by the National Center of Education Statistics are attached to the document. (Author/KE)
