Two volumes of the 1987-88 Directory of Postsecondary Institutions list all postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Northern Marianas, Puerto Rico, Trust Territories' and the Virgin Islands) that were known to exist as of June 1988. There were 12,052 institutions: 2,652 colleges granting at least a bachelor's degree; 2,925 2-year schools; and 6,475 less-than-2-year institutions. The information presented for each institution includes its name, address, telephone number, 1986 fall enrollment, and tuition and fees and room and board charges for the 1987-88 academic year. Also included are control, highest level of offering, types of programs offered, and recognized accreditations. The directory presents data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System Institutional Characteristics Survey. Volume 1 offers information on four-year and two-year institutions, and Volume 2 provides information on less-than-two-year institutions. Each has two appendices (1) changes in institutions of higher education 1986-88 (institutions added, reinstated, deleted, no longer accredited at the college level, merged, and listed by new names); and (2) a list of accrediting bodies recognized by the Secretary, U.S. Department of Education. Tables are included. (SM)
