The rise of college tuition

Spent some time yesterday talking with some friends about the rise of college tuition. We weren’t quite sure just how extreme the jump was, so I looked it up. Collegeboard has a nice summary table here, which graphed makes a really stunning picture:

TuitionFees1975to2015

 

TuitionFeesWithRoomBoard1975to2015

Note these numbers have been adjusted for inflation, and for public schools, these numbers are the in-district rate.

(These were made in LibreOffice, and I feel meh about the quality.)
