Barbett, Samuel F.; And Others
This document lists the typical tuition and required fees and room and board charges assessed to college students in 1994-95 based on a national "Institutional Characteristics" survey which is part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. The data were collected from over 5,000 of the 5,775 4-year, 2-year, and public less-then-2-year postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas. Included are tuition and fee charges to in-state and out-of-state students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, along with the costs for room and board, and the number of meals per week covered by the board charge. These charges are not weighted by enrollment. Included are several tables with national statistics on tuition and required fees at postsecondary institutions for academic year 1994-95 followed by tables showing charges at individual institutions and tuition and required fees for first-professional programs. A summary of the publication's statistics notes that the median charge at public 4-year institutions for tuition and fees was $2,445 for undergraduate, in-state students; that at public 2-year institutions tuition and required fees averaged $1,461 for in-state students; and that undergraduate tuition and fees at private, non-profit 4-year institutions averaged $8,967 for in-state undergraduate students.
