1 On-campus average price is based on those institutions that offer on-campus housing and/or meal service. 

2 Off-campus average price is based on those institutions that do not require full-time, first-time students to live on campus.

NOTE: Price of attendance includes tuition and required fees, room and board charges, books and supplies, and other expenses. Prices are average institutional prices, not average amounts paid by students (i.e., charges are not weighted by enrollment). The 87 public 2-year institutions with academic calendars that differ by program or allow continuous enrollment are not included. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
