1 For public institutions, “in district” refers to the charges paid by a student who lives in the locality surrounding the institution, such as county.

NOTE: Amounts are institutional averages as reported by the institution, not average amounts paid by students (i.e., charges are not weighted by enrollment). Out-of-state average tuition and required fees were used for private institutions that reported varying tuitions by residency. These figures may differ from the tuition and required fee charges in table 3 that apply to all full-time undergraduates. The average components of academic year price of attendance in this table may not sum to the corresponding average price of attendance in table 5 because not all institutions report all components of academic year price of attendance separately (e.g., an institution may report a comprehensive fee in lieu of the individual components). Institutions that report tuitions by program are not included. U.S. service academies are not included. All amounts from 2006-07 were converted to 2008-09 dollars using the average Consumer Price Index values for the 12-month periods ending in October 2006 and October 2008.
