‡ Reporting standards not met. No institutions met the criteria to be included in this cell.

1Only includes institutions that offer both on-campus dormitory facilities and on-campus meal plans. In 2013–14, 441 institutions (141 public, 290 nonprofit, and 10 for-profit) could not separate dormitory facility charges from meal plan charges and reported a combined charge. Likewise for 2016–17, 426 institutions (132 public, 288 nonprofit, and 6 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 U.S. Department of Education that allows the institution to participate in any of the Title IV federal student financial assistance programs. The four U.S. service academies that are not Title IV eligible are included in the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (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 (2,423 in fall 2016 and 2,633 in fall 2013) are not included. All amounts from 2013–14 were converted to 2016–17 dollars using the average Consumer Price Index values for the 12-month periods ending in October 2013 and October 2016. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the IPEDS online glossary located at https://surveys.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/VisGlossaryAll.aspx.
