1Average undergraduate tuition and fees are based on in-state students only.
NOTE: Data are for the entire academic year and are average charges for full-time students. Student charges were weighted by the number of full-time-equivalent undergraduates, but were not adjusted to reflect student residency. The data have not been adjusted for changes in the purchasing power of the dollar. Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs.
