1 Prior to 2010-11, Title IV not primarily postsecondary institutions were not required to respond to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) survey; however, 1 out of 2 such institutions meeting the criteria to be included in this table responded voluntarily to the fall 2009 Institutional Characteristics component.

2 Does not include institutions that only offer on-campus dormitory facilities or only on-campus meal plans. In 2009-10, 417 institutions (128 public, 287 nonprofit, and 2 for-profit) could not separate dormitory facility charges from meal plan charges and reported a combined charge. Likewise for 2012-13, 425 institutions (139 public, 278 nonprofit, and 8 for-profit) could not separate dormitory facility charges from meal plan charges and reported a combined charge. These combined charges are included here, but not in the rows that display the charges separately.

NOTE: Title IV institutions are those with a written agreement with the Secretary of Education that allows the institution to participate in any of the Title IV federal student financial assistance programs. Although they are not Title IV eligible, four of the U.S. service academies are included in the IPEDS universe because they are federally funded and open to the public. However, the U.S. service academies are not included in this table. Tuition and required fees are average institutional charges, not average amounts paid by students (i.e., charges are not weighted by enrollment). The time points displayed in this table were chosen to demonstrate the range of data available from IPEDS for trend analysis, not to emphasize any particular period of change. Undergraduate tuitions and fees represent all institutions that offer undergraduate programs and enroll full-time undergraduates. Institutions with academic calendars that differ by program or allow continuous enrollment (2,621 in fall 2012 and 2,291 in fall 2009) are not included. Medians were calculated using SAS, Version 9, Proc Univariate. All amounts from 2009-10 were converted to 2012-13 dollars using the average Consumer Price Index values for the 12-month periods ending in October 2009 and October 2012. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the IPEDS online glossary located at http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/glossary. l 2009) are not included.
