College Tuition Costs Jump

Chris Farrell Oct 22, 2007

According to College Board, the annual cost of attending a four-year private college jumped 3.9% to $32,307. That’s the biggest inflation-adjusted increase since 2001. The figure includes tuition, fees, and room-and-board.

For public four-year colleges, the inflation-adjusted increase was 3.8% to an average of $13,589. That’s for in-state student tuition.
