List of Public Colleges and its Statistics

In the United States, most public universities are state universities founded and operated by state government entities. States generally charge higher tuition to out-of-state students. The higher fees are based on the theory that students from the state, or much more often their parents, have contributed to subsidizing the university by paying state taxes, while out-of-state students and their parents have not. Every U.S. state has at least one public university to its name, and the largest states have more than thirty. For public colleges, this list excludes two years or less colleges such as community colleges and vocational schools. The list includes public four (4) years colleges - national universities, liberal arts colleges, regional universities, and some specialized schools.
There are 493 Public Colleges. The 2022 average undergraduate tuition & fees of the schools is $10,099 for in-state students and $22,240 for out-of-state students. The average graduate tuition & fees is $20,548. The average SAT scores of enrolled students is 1,134 and the average acceptance rate is 78% for Public Colleges.
