BISMARCK, N.D. - While the recent recession has exposed historic fault lines in educational opportunity, North Dakota higher education has weathered the storm well, according to an annual report by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.

North Dakota had the lowest percentage change in resident undergraduate tuition and fees at public four-year institutions from 2010-11 to 2011-12. The state also was found to have the lowest change in dollars in resident undergraduate tuition and fees at public two-year institutions.

Additionally, only two states - North Dakota and Alaska - received an increase in state funding levels in the most recent review. The survey included Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming).
