Due to the disruption and uncertainty caused by Covid-19, the Hechinger Report has determined that forecasts based on pre-pandemic figures risk being inaccurate. Net price and tuition data include only historical figures and can be used to compare past disparities between costs and tuition.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is difficult to predict what the average student will pay in the future, as the federal government publishes data with several years of delays.

The numbers above should be used as a guide to compare colleges based on historical costs. To get a more accurate estimate of your costs for upcoming academic years, visit the school's net price calculator.

Projected net price for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 academic years is calculated by taking the net price-to-sticker price ratio from 2018-19 and applying it to the most recent years.

Net price is calculated by subtracting federal, state, local and institutional grants and scholarships from the sticker price for first-time, full-time (and, at public universities, in-state) undergraduates. Net price data shown above includes only families of students who received some form of federal student aid, including loans, since others are not tracked.

Success rates
Graduation rates by race

Rate of students who earn a bachelor’s degree within six years of starting or an associate degree within three years. Five-year averages.

Rates not shown for groups making up less than 1 percent of enrollment during the five-year period.

Graduation rates are not perfect measures of school quality, but a low rate could mean many students are dropping out or taking too long to finish, which pushes up the cost of their education. Read more

Retention rates by type

Percentage of freshmen at four-year colleges who returned the following fall or, at two-year colleges, who completed their credentials or returned after one year. Five-year averages.
