Student Charges at Public Institution: Annual Survey 1987-88.
Ludwig, Meredith; Wassan, Heidi
The 1987 report on student charges at public colleges and universities presents data on the costs of attending about 90 percent of the national publicly assisted, four-year institutions. The report uses data compiled by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grand Colleges (NASULGC) from 507 institutions responding to a survey. The analysis found that: (1) tuition, fees, room, and board expenses climbed an average of 5.4 percent in fall 1987 over the previous year for in-state, undergraduate students; (2) an average of $1,500 for tuition and fees and $2,595 for room and board brought the price of full-time attendance to $4,095; (3) tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates averaged $1,456 in fall of 1987 a 6.4 percent increase over the previous year; (4) out-of-state, undergraduate students paid 5.8 percent more for full-time attendance in the fall of 1987 than the previous year; (5) graduate students paid an average of $1,648 for in-state tuition and fees, a 6.6 percent increase; and (6) in-state first professional students paid average tuition and fees of $2,353 for law, $5,179 for medicine, $3,601 for veterinary medicine, and $3,601 for dentistry. The bulk of the document presents data in five tables. Appendices contain tables of undergraduate and graduate charges by association, charges at non-affiliated colleges, and charges for first-professional tuition and fees. (JB)
