College Costs

In Wyoming, the cost of attending a public college or university has increased by 27% in just five years, according to a 2012 report from the College Board. These increases come as a result of inflation, and in the case of Wyoming and seven other states, particularly deep cuts to higher education support from the state, cuts that have continued through the recent recession. The College Board report noted that in 2012, the state of Wyoming allocated $12.63 to higher education per $1,000 in personal income.

College Enrollment

The College Board’s 2012 report on Trends in Tuition, Fees, Enrollment and State Appropriations for Higher Education by State noted that enrollment in Wyoming’s 4-year public institutions increased by 26.4% between 2000 and 2012, while enrollment in community colleges increased 37.8%. This may be due in part to the partnership between high schools and colleges around Wyoming, which offer dual or concurrent enrollment to high school students, allowing them to attend high school and college at the same time, earning credit while completing their diploma. A report by the National Governor’s Association on the Complete to Compete program showed that in 2009, approximately 15% of Wyoming high schoolers took at least one AP course. The report says students who took advantage of programs that boost their options for college were more likely to attend college after high school.
