2 Constant dollars for all but the most recent year are based on the average of the calendar year Consumer Price Indices (Urban CPI - all market basket items). The index used for 2015-16 is computed from the average of the June and July 2015 indices. See Table 24, pages 70-71, in the July 2015 CPI Detailed Report: http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpi_dr.htm
3 Includes reciprocity. Reciprocity agreements exist with several counties in Ohio and Kentucky that allow IU East students to pay resident rates for instruction.
4 Beginning in 2013-14, cost of attendance (COA) estimates were reduced from prior year figures due to a new IU-wide methodology.
