Tuition and Fee Rates, 2002-03: A National Comparison.
This is the 34th annual report of tuition and fees at public institutions in the 50 states. All data were compiled using Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board surveys of state agencies or individual institutions. National tables 1 through 10 provide a national perspective on tuition and fees and increases over the most recent 5 years for four-year and two-year institutions. Data represent the average undergraduate charges at 214 state public institutions and the average graduate charges at 192 of those with graduate programs. Peer tables compare tuition and charges in institutions that correspond to Washington state colleges and universities. The first appendix discusses the national peer groups used as benchmarks for Washington institutions and provides tables displaying the relationship of tuition and fee rates at Washington institutions to those of their peer groups. The second appendix lists the four-year colleges and universities in the survey. (Contains 30 tables.) (SLD)
