Tuition and Required Fees and Room and Board Charges at Institutions of Higher Education in Pennsylvania, 1982-83.
Hottinger, Gerald W.
Statistical data are presented on tuition and required fees and room and board charges at Pennsylvania colleges and universities for 1982-1983. Brief narrative descriptions of trends in these costs are also included. Data are presented on the following: average in-state undergraduate tuition and required fees for academic years 1973-1974 through 1982-1983 by institutional category; average combined room and board charges for academic year 1973-1974 through 1982-1983 by institutional category; average tuition and required fees for the academic year 1982-1983 by institutional category by program level; first-professional tuition and required fees by field of study for the academic year 1982-1983; and room and board charges at institutions of higher education for the academic year 1982-1983. The trend analyses indicated that generally the tuition and required fees doubled from the academic year 1973-1974 to 1982-1983. By category these increases ranged from a low of 96.7 percent at the private junior colleges to a high of 140.3 percent at the theological seminaries. Throughout the period, tuition and required fees at public institutions were about one-half the amount at private institutions. The average combined room and board charges include data for those institutions that reported charges for both room and board. Over the 10-year period, combined room and board charges increased at a smaller rate than tuition and required fees. These increases ranged from 83 percent at the state-related commonwealth universities to 122.4 percent at the private state-aided institutions. (SW)
