Creating a University System for the 21st Century. 2001-2002 Student Charges: A Regional and National Comparison.
North Dakota Univ. System, Bismarck.
This report presents information on student charges in the North Dakota University System (NDUS) in comparison with charges at nearby states. Tuition and fee information is based on survey data collected by the Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board; the Washington state report is the primary resource document for comparative tuition and fees studies in North Dakota. The report presents comparative data for public colleges and universities in three categories: doctoral level universities, colleges and state universities, and community colleges. The information in this report shows that average resident undergraduate tuition and fees in the regional states are between 14% to 16% more than the average tuition and fees of their counterparts at all NDUS institutions except the two-year campuses. The average NDUS two-year campus rate is higher (6.9%) than the regional average for 2001-2002. Tuition and fees, as a percentage of median North Dakota household income is comparable to the regional average. The total resident undergraduate charges for the regional states are 9.2% more than for NDUS institutions. An appendix identifies the regional institutions used in the analysis. (Contains 10 tables.)
