Raudenbush, Kathy; Tobin, David
This 31st annual report of tuition and fees at public institutions in the 50 states compiled by the Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) examines tuition and fees at Washington State institutions compared to national averages. Generally, Washington institutions of higher education charge fees that: (1) are less than the national average for resident undergraduate tuition and fees; (2) are substantially more than the national average for resident and nonresident graduate tuition and fees at research and comprehensive universities; and (3) are substantially more for nonresident undergraduate tuition and fees at comprehensive universities and community colleges. Three appendixes comprise the bulk of this report. The first discusses the national peer comparison groups used as benchmarks for Washington institutions and provides tables displaying the relationship of tuition and fees at Washington institutions to those of their respective peer groups for the years 1995-96 to 1999-2000. It also includes data on full-time tuition and fees for the first professional degree programs of medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine at the University of Washington and Washington State University compared to their respective peer groups. Appendix 2 contains an overview of Washington State tuition and fee policies and legislation since 1997; appendix 3 lists four-year colleges and universities participating in the survey. (SM)
