Random stat of the day

Roger Duhl ’60 asks Abe: “What was in-state and out-of-state tuition in September of 1956? If you can give it to me for ’57, ’58, ’59 and ’60 that would be great.”

Answer: Back in September of 1956, student fees and tuition per semester were $90 for residents and $250 for nonresidents. The rates went up in 1957–58, to $100 for in-state students and $275 for out-of-state students. Two years later, in 1959–60, rates rose to $110 and $300, respectively. Since 1969–70, tuition and fees have increased each year. In fall 2007, undergraduate fees and tuition per semester were $3,595 for residents and $10,720 for nonresidents.
