College Costs

The cost of a postsecondary degree in the state has risen by 39% since 2009. Broken down further, the following saw differing tuition changes: two-year public schools rose by 65%; four-year public by 37%; and four-year private by 14%. Private universities are aggressively marketing the small margin of difference in cost by directing prospective students and their families to the White House's College Scorecard page to compare costs after financial aid. Every year for the last decade, the declining enrollments at state colleges and universities has led the legislator to increase tuition and fees at state schools.

College Enrollment

According to the United States Census Bureau, the population of Idaho grew at a pace of 30% during the first decade of this century, outpacing the nation's growth as a whole by more than 20%. However, college enrollment for much of that same period grew at a much slower rate of only 19.4%, with some schools experiencing a decrease in enrollment of 9.4% in 2012. Many experts blame a stagnant economy and uncertain employment prospects for the decline.
