Montana Commission on Post-Secondary Education, Helena.
The future financing of postsecondary education is a critical issue facing those charged with national and state educational policy. Questions regarding pricing, financial aids, the methods of support, and the impact of various policies on accessibility and educational quality are hotly debated in Congress and in every state. To determine how financial responsibility for postsecondary education can be allocated so as to achieve the best ends, this report focuses on how students in Montana currently finance their postsecondary education and the adequacy of student resources to meet educational costs. This report provides answers using information reported by students in public postsecondary education in January 1974. Included in the study is methodology; educational characteristics of the student in Montana's postsecondary institutions; the costs of postsecondary education in Montana (divided by educational expenses and maintenance expenses); students' dependence, independence, and parental income; the family contribution to educational expenses; and financial aid. Appendixes include the members of the survey research group, the student questionnaire, and supplementary tables. (Author/PG)
