Costs at U.S. Educational Institutions, 1982/83.
Boyan, Douglas R.
Costs at U.S. educational institutions for 1982-1983 are identified. A listing of monthly maintenance rates (MMR) by institution within each state covers room, board, incidentals, and makes no distinction between on-campus and off-campus living. The MMR data and guidelines for additional expenses are for the foreign student in typical full-time undergraduate or graduate programs. A limit on the MMR that was established for U.S. government-supported academic grantees was set at $650 during the 1982-1983 academic year. Another listing is presented of costs at about 1,000 institutions, based on data obtained by the Institute of International Education's (IIE) 1982 Tuition, Fees and Academic Calendar Survey. For each school, MMR data are presented on out-of-state and in-state tuition, fees, the type of academic calendar used, the dates of each academic period (including summer sessions), and registration dates. Complete costs and other information are provided for institutions having a large percentage of foreign students. States are listed alphabetically, as are institutions within states, for both lists. Additional expenses and allowances that may be relevant include: settling-in expenses, accident and health insurance, expenses of maintaining an automobile, additional costs for accompanying dependents, vacation periods, books, additional equipment and materials, field trips, study- or research-related travel, and thesis/dissertation and related research costs. The system for determining MMR, which is based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics system, uses Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas, cost components, (e.g., food, housing, transportation), inflation adjustment, and special foreign student adjustment.
