Box #1: Undergraduate Population
Sources: U.S. Department of Education. Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics
Undergraduate population is the headcount of all full- and part-time students
enrolled at the university in the fall of 2017. It does not include postbaccalaureate
students.
Box #2: Residential Students
Sources: U.S. Department of Education. Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics
The percentage of undergraduates who live in college-owned, college-operated or
college-affiliated housing during the fall of 2017.
In our above example from Texas State University, 20% of undergraduates live
on-campus. The other 80% are considered commuters -- who live off-campus in
privately owned housing.
It is typical for this number to be much higher when only considering the
percentage of freshmen living on campus. At Texas State, for example, the figure for
freshmen living on campus is 92% because the university requires all freshmen to
live on campus unless they qualify for a waiver exemption.
Box #3: Graduation Rate -- Six-Year
Sources: The 2018 Texas Public Higher Education Almanac, National Center for Education Statistics
The graduation rate is the percentage of first-time entering,degree seeking
students who graduated with a bachelor’s degree or higher from the same
institution or another Texas public or independent institution within 6 (six)
academic years. Data also exists for 4-year graduation rates.
Box #4: Acceptance Rate
Sources: The 2018 Texas Public Higher Education Almanac, National Center for Education Statistics
The acceptance rate for a university is defined as the percentage of applicants who
are offered admission. In Texas, it is important to consult the automatic admission
criteria for each public four-year university.
Box #5: Tuition & Fees
Sources: The 2018 Texas Public Higher Education Almanac (2018 Rates), U.S. Department of Education
The cost of tuition and mandatory fees charged to a student taking 30 semester
credit hours per academic year. Tuition includes mandatory tuition (state-required
tuition) and designated tuition (set by institutional governing boards).
This figure does NOT include room and board (housing and meals). Please refer
to each university’s website to learn more about those costs. We provide a link.
