NCES Releases New Data on Postsecondary Tuition, Fees and Degrees

[ipeds logo]Between 2011-12 and 2013-14, the average tuition and required fees at 4-year public institutions (after adjusting for inflation) increased more for in-state students (4 percent increase) than for out-of-state students (3 percent increase). During that same time period, 4-year nonprofit institutions increased overall at 4 percent. However, for-profit institutions reported a 3 percent decrease. This First Look presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) fall 2013 data collection, which included three survey components: institutional characteristics for 2013-14-such as degrees offered, type of program, application information, and tuition and other costs; the number and type of degrees conferred from July 2012 through June 2013; and 12-month enrollment data for the 2012-13 academic year.

Other findings include:

* In 2013-14, of the 7,397 Title IV institutions in the United States and other jurisdictions, 3,122 were classified as 4-year institutions, 2,230 were 2-year institutions, and the remaining 2,045 were less-than-2-year institutions.

* Institutions reported a 12-month unduplicated headcount enrollment totaling about 28.3 million individual students. Of these, roughly 24.5 million were undergraduates and approximately 3.8 million were graduate students.

* Of the roughly 3 million students receiving degrees at 4-year Title IV institutions, 47 percent were 18- to 24-years old.
