Brown, Patricia Q.
This report presents detailed tabulations for the 1998-1999 academic year that describe characteristics of the 9,653 postsecondary education institutions in the United States and outlying areas. These characteristics include tuition and required fees for undergraduate, graduate, and first-professional programs and room and board charges at institutions providing these accommodations. Data are from the Institutional Characteristics Survey, a component of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) of the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. The report also provides a comparison between 1993-1994 and 1998-1999 tuition, required fees, and room and board charges for the 50 states and the District of Columbia. For the 1998-1999 academic year, 9,485 institutions in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and 168 in the outlying areas fit the IPEDS definition. These institutions are classified as public or private not-for-profit or for-profit. Almost 4,600, or 48% of all IPEDS institutions, granted degrees, and 43% were Title IV participating and degree-granting in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the outlying areas. The report also contains a section describing the methodology used to develop the tables. Information on institutional characteristics, tuition and other charges, and Title IV participation are provided in a series of tables. (Contains 23 tables.) (SLD)
