Student Charges at Public, Four-Year Institutions Fall 1993.
Strand, Heather, Comp.; Sweeney, Robert, Comp.
The 1993 study of student charges at four-year public colleges and universities examined tuition and fees, room and board and first professional program charges. The study used data compiled by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grand Colleges (NASULGC) in an annual survey of member institutions which in 1993 drew 485 responses (of 577 mailed). The analysis found that, though student charges continue to rise, the rate of increase for tuition and fees has returned to the level it held throughout most of the 1980s. Tuition and fees for undergraduate residents increased by 7.6 percent compared with 10.4 percent between fall 1991 and fall 1992 and 13.6 percent between fall 1990 and fall 1991. Though state appropriations for higher education continue to fall short, numerous institutions report that their own fiscal situation has stabilized if not improved. Extensive appendixes, the bulk of the document, contain tables showing cost information for specific colleges and universities for undergraduate and graduate tuition and fees for AASCU and NASULGC institutions respectively. Also included are tables showing charges at nonaffiliated institutions and tuition and fees for first professional degrees. (JB)
