Student Expenses at Postsecondary Institutions 1973-74.
Allan, James B.; Suchar, Elizabeth W.
This document presents data on student expenses at collees and other postsecondary educational institutions. Data were collected from the Parents' Confidential Statement (PCS) and the Student's Financial Statement (SFS), two information forms of the College Scholarship Service (CSS). Data on costs on more than 2,000 institutions were provided by the institutions themselves. An analysis of the data revealed several findings: (1) Major differences in expenses at the various types of institutions can be traced to differences in tuition and other fees. (2) Budgets for commuters are generally lower than for residents. (3) Tuition and other fees average only 12% of commuting students' budgets at 2-year public institutions and as much as 63% of commuting students budgets at private 4-year institutions. (4) Expenses have increased over the last 3 years at all types of institutions. (Author/MJM)
