College Affordability and Transparency Center

Description


The College Affordability and Transparency Center includes information for students, parents, and policymakers about college costs at America’s colleges and universities. The Center includes several lists of institutions based on the tuition and fees and net prices (the price of attendance after considering all grant and scholarship aid) charged to students. These lists meet requirements outlined in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) and will be updated annually and posted on the College Navigator website by July 1.

The lists were generated using data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). IPEDS is a mandatory data collection for institutions that participate in or are applicants for participation in any federal student financial aid program authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20 USC 1094, Section 487(a)(17) and 34 CFR 668.14(b)(19)).

The 2012 lists are based on data collected during the 2010-11 IPEDS data collection cycle, the most recent data that have undergone the full NCES data review process and been publicly released via the IPEDS Data Center. During the 2011-12 IPEDS data collection, institutions also had the opportunity to review the data they submitted in 2010-11 for accuracy and revise it, if necessary, via the IPEDS Prior Year Revision System. The lists reflect any revisions made by institutions through that process. Both the originally reported data and revised data for all Title IV institutions are publicly available via the IPEDS Data Center.

Lists were generated for:

  • Highest tuition and required fees: A list of the five percent of institutions that have the highest tuition and required fees for the 2010-11 academic year
  • Highest net price: A list of the five percent of institutions that have the highest net price for the 2009-10 academic year
  • Lowest tuition and required fees: A list of the ten percent of institutions that have the lowest tuition and required fees for the 2010-11 academic year
  • Lowest net price: A list of the ten percent of institutions that have the lowest net price for the 2009-10 academic year
