\1\Preliminary data based on fall 1996 enrollments.
---Data not reported or not applicable.

NOTE.--Data are for the entire academic year and are average charges. Tuition and fees were weighted by the number of full-time-equivalent undergraduates in 1996, but are not adjusted to reflect student residency. Room and board are based on full-time students. Because of rounding, details may not add to totals.
