Public College Costs Surge, Idaho Universities Still Much Lower Than U.S. Average

As President Barack Obama announced details of a plan to ease debt burdens for the nation's students, the College Board was simultaneously announcing that average in-state tuition and fees at four-year public colleges surged 8.3 percent this fall (but 7.4 percent when excluding California). The College Board said the tuition increases stemmed from a weakened economy and state funding that hasn't kept pace with enrollment growth.

Published in-state tuition and fees at public four-year institutions average $8,244. This fall, Boise State's in-state tuition for a full-time student (12-18 credits) was $3,594. The University of Idaho's in-state tuition for a full-time student (10-20 credits) was $2,928.

Published out-of-state tuition and fees at public four-year colleges and universities average $20,770. This fall, Boise State's out-of-state tuition for a full-time student (12-plus credits) was $5,200. The University of Idaho's out-of-state tuition for a full-time student (10-plus credits) was $6,260.
