Report Says College Prices, Once Stable, Are Up Again

October 24, 2012

The average price of tuition, fees, room and board, after financial aid and tuition tax credits are deducted, has reached $12,110 at public four-year colleges for in-state students and $23,840 at private nonprofit institutions.
