The College Blue Book has been a standard, professional reference on higher education since it was first published in 1923. New features have been added during the intervening years to keep pace with the changing needs for information about our educational facilities. The information, especially in the areas of tuition, room and board, enrollment figures, library holdings, is constantly changing. It is difficult to maintain up-to-date figures in these areas, as many schools change tuition and related costs on an ongoing basis. We therefore urge our readers to check directly with the schools for the most current cost information.
Volume 2: Tabular Data Colleges are listed alphabetically by state or province. Information about costs, accreditation, enrollment figures, faculty, and names of the chief administrative officers are given for each school.
Most of the data in this volume are self-explanatory. A few elements, however, need some clarification:
Costs Per Year Tuition charges are constantly changing and information reported here is as correct as possible. However, it is recommended that the institutions be contacted for the most current information on charges for tuition, room and board, and miscellaneous fees. Many schools will have several tuitions: in-district, instate, nonresident. See Narrative Descriptions volume for a more complete breakdown.
Athletics An Index on Intercollegiate Athletics listed alphabetically by sport and then by school follows the main section of this volume.
Professional Accreditations Due to space constraints, acronyms have been used. A list of these acronyms follows this section. An Index of Professional Accreditations follows the athletics index in this volume.
Admission Plans Early admission: Exceptionally able students are admitted before high school graduation.
Early action plan: Students apply and are notified of admission early; if accepted, the candidate is not committed to enroll. Early decision: The school accepts well-qualified students who are notified earlier than usual, generally by mid-December. Rolling admission: An admission decision will be given as soon as possible after all application materials are received. Deferred admission: A student who wants to work, travel, study abroad, etc., for one year, will be accepted for the following year. Open admission: Students are admitted without the usual record for standard qualifications. Almost all students with a high school diploma or equivalent are admitted.
