Tuition and Fees in Public Higher Education in the West, 1986-87. Information Series, 11.
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, Boulder, CO.
The seventh in an annual series of reports contains tabular presentations of tuition and fee charges for full-time, full-year attendance at public institutions in 14 western states (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming). Charges are reported for community college students, resident and nonresident undergraduates at four-year institutions, and resident and non-resident graduate students. For each category, student charges are reported for the current and prior academic years (1986-87 and 1985-86) and for 1982-83, to show the percent change over 1- and 5-year periods. Arithmetic averages for specific groups of institutions and states and percentage changes in these averages from previous years are also provided. Highlights of the findings include: (1) tuition and fees continued to increase, and increases continued to exceed the level of overall price increases; (2) for community college students, full-time attendance charges increased 5.9% to $605, excluding California; and (3) for nonresident students, tuition and fees are over three times the charges for resident students.
