1 Average undergraduate tuition and fees are based on in-state students only.
2 Preliminary data based on fall 2006 enrollment weights.
NOTE: Data are for the entire academic year and are average rates for full-time students. Student charges were weighted by the number of full-time-equivalent undergraduates, but were not adjusted to reflect student residency. The data have not been adjusted for changes in the purchasing power of the dollar. Degree-granting institutions grant associ­ate's or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. Some data have been revised from previously published figures.
