Graduate Education Report.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report presents information about graduate education at eight state-funded institutions in Colorado: the University of Northern Colorado, the Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, the University of Southern Colorado, Adams State College, the University of Colorado (Boulder), the University of Colorado (Colorado Springs), and the University of Colorado (Denver). The report notes that: (1) graduate education is a small proportion of the educational effort at most of these institutions; (2) costs per student are lowest at institutions offering no doctoral degrees, with educational costs primarily driven by faculty time and compensation; (3) most in-state graduate students pay about 30 percent of costs, while nonresidents pay more than 100 percent; (4) cost differences between graduate and undergraduate courses exceed the difference in tuition rates; and (5) state support for these institutions covers about 70 percent of costs for undergraduate and graduate resident students. Tables and data provide detailed institutional profiles and cost and tuition revenue summaries. Appended are 20 additional tables presenting detailed data on costs and revenues, methodology, graduate degree programs, and graduate student financial support. (CH)
