‡ Reporting standards not met; fewer than three respondents.
1 Out-of-state average and median tuition and required fees were used for private institutions that reported varying tuitions by residency.
2 Four 2-year institutions reported graduate-level tuition and/or fees in 2005-06.
NOTE: Tuition and required fees are average institutional charges, not average amounts paid by students (i.e., charges are not weighted by enrollment). Institutions that report tuitions by program are not included. U.S. service academies are not included. Averages and medians for first-professional programs were calculated based on only those institutions that offer degrees at the first-professional level. Medians were calculated using SAS, Version 9, Proc Univariate. Due to natural disaster, 22 institutions were unable to respond to this survey; their data were not imputed, and they are not represented in this table.
