Between 2010-11 and 2012-13, the average tuition and required fees at 4-year public institutions (after adjusting for inflation) increased more for in-state students (7 percent increase) than for out-of-state students (4 percent increase). During that same time period, 4-year nonprofit institutions increased overall at 3 percent. However, for-profit institutions reported a 2 percent decrease.
This First Look presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) fall 2012 data collection, which included three survey components: institutional characteristics for 2012-13—such as degrees offered, type of program, application information, and tuition and other costs; the number and type of degrees conferred from July 2011 through June 2012; and 12-month enrollment data for the 2011-12 academic year.
Other findings include:
• In 2012-13, of the 7,416 Title IV institutions in the United States and other jurisdictions, 3,110 were classified as 4-year institutions, 2,263 were 2-year institutions, and the remaining 2,043 were less-than-2-year institutions.
• Institutions reported a 12-month unduplicated headcount enrollment totaling about 29 million individual students. Of these, roughly 25.2 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, 46 percent were 18- to 24-years old.
