American Association of State Colleges and Universities Annual Survey of Tuition and Fees and Room and Board Charges, 1980-81.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
In 1980, full-time state resident undergraduate students attending AASCU-member institutions paid an average of $712 for tuition and fees, and $1,605 for room and board charges. These figures reflect a 10.6 percent average increase over 1979 costs. Including books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses, the cost of college attendance approximated $3,500 in September 1980. However, the percentage increase is slightly less than the increase in the Consumer Price Index. Increases in tuition and fees for graduate students averaged 10.5 percent. Tuition and fees and rates of increase vary by region, with the highest in the eastern states, and lower rates in the western and southern regions. Detailed information is provided, in tabular form, on tuition and fees, room and board costs, and percentage changes, according to region, year, level (undergraduate or graduate), resident and nonresident students, state, and institution.
