The first of a series of publications designed to answer questions about higher education in Virginia, this booklet presents bar graphs showing data on who enters Virginia's public colleges and universities, what it costs them, and at what rates they progress and graduate. Data reflect what was happening in 1994 or earlier, before Virginia's public colleges and universities undertook significant restructuring efforts, and are intended to provide a baseline from which to measure change. Graphs present data by institution on: (1) average Scholastic Assessment Test score and high school grade point average for first-time freshmen; (2) acceptance rates for freshmen; (3) enrollment rate and domicile of freshmen; (4) freshmen as a percentage of total enrollment; (5) freshmen by race and gender; (6) freshmen at two-year institutions (by race, gender, and full- or part-time status); (7) entering transfer students by domicile, race, gender, and status; (9) first-time graduate students by domicile, race, gender, and status; (10) tracking the class of fall 1992 freshmen through fall 1994; (11) undergraduate costs to attend Virginia's public colleges and universities; (12) graduate costs; (13) first-professional costs; (14) average award and percentage of undergraduate students receiving financial aid; and (15) average award and percentage of graduate and first-professional students receiving financial aid.
