An Analysis of the Aggregate Financial Needs of Kentucky's Post-Secondary Students. Research Report.
College Entrance Examination Board, Atlanta, GA. Southern Regional Office.; Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, Frankfort.
The primary emphasis of this document is the accurate estimation of the financial need of undergraduates in Kentucky postsecondary institutions during the 1971-72 academic year. The need for an aggregate analysis of the type found in this document is twofold: (1) it presents an estimate of the total financial need that exists in an educational system; and (2) it allows the Commonwealth of Kentucky to determine areas of greatest need. To calculate the financial aid needs for a currently enrolled student in Kentucky, it is necessary to determine four factors: (1) expected student contribution or self-help, (2) expected parental contribution, (3) income distribution data for the families of the relevant group of students, and (4) expected out-of-pocket costs or total budgeted expenses for students at the institutions they plan to attend. Presented is an analysis of the financial need for undergraduates attending seven groups in Kentucky institutions--major public universities, regional public universities, four-year nonpublic colleges, two-year nonpublic colleges, community colleges, vocational-technical schools, and propriertary schools. Models are developed under three differing sets of conditions: (1) actual 1973-74 estimates; (2) 1973-74 estimations, including the potential effects of the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program; and (3) 1973-74 estimations based on the aspirations of educational attainment as expressed by Kentucky secondary school students.
