The Delaware Cost Study – The National Study of Instructional Cost & Productivity

Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 data collection cycle of the National Study of Instructional Costs and Productivity (The Delaware Cost Study).

Visit our “News and Updates” page to meet the members of the Higher Education Advisory Board and read updates concerning the New Web Portal Submission process for the Delaware Cost Study!
We would like to express our gratitude to the following members of the Higher Education Consortia that have volunteered their expertise and knowledge as we transition The Delaware Cost Study into a new era. They will guide us in revamping our submission process, offer insights on new approaches in selecting peer groups and producing benchmarking comparisons. Our goal is to increase the number of institutions that participate in the study and improve the usefulness of the final results.

The Higher Education Consortia will be introducing our new Web Portal Submission Platform to the institutions that participated in the 2015 Delaware Cost Study, with the release of the final results in July. For those that are interested in participating in the next cycle of the study, the 2016 ‘Invitation to Participate’ will be announced at the end of August. Please contact our office if you would like to be included in the invitation email or check back here in September to register to participate.

With the start of the 2016 Delaware Cost Study we are changing the way data is submitted to the study. Information on the new submission process can be found by clicking Cost Study Instructions. Updates and “Step by Step” instructions on how to submit your data will be added to our website with the start of the upcoming cycle of the study.

The Consortia will be hard at work this summer revamping our website, starting on phase two of the web portal process and working with the Advisory Board to update and improve the National Study of Instructional Cost and Productivity.


Thank you very much for your interest and consideration.
Best regards,

Tom Eleuterio
