Summary

This is a report documenting tuition and required fees, room rates, and board rate increases at member institutions of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC). The report shows that median prices have increased in 1971-72 over 1970-71 costs for both resident and nonresident students. Tuition and required fees at NASULGC institutions have risen 8.80% for residents and 16.99% for nonresidents. Room rates have increased 2.28% and board rates 7.63%. Tuition and required fees at AASCU institutions have risen 8.28% for residents and 4.04% for nonresidents. Room rates have increased 3.93% and board rates 4.25%. The major reasons for this cost increase are: (1) inflation; (2) maintenance of current level of program quality; and (3) inadequate appropriations from state legislature. The lowest charge for resident tuition and fees among these public universities was $70, the amount charged by District of Columbia Teachers College and City University of New York. The highest cost was at NASULGC member Cornell University ($2,800). In a regional comparison of NASULGC member institutions, the Southeast was the least expensive and New England the most expensive. In a comparison of AASCU member institutions, the Southeast region registered the lowest charges and the Middle Atlantic region the highest for residents, while the West was the highest for nonresidents.
