This survey of over 600 undergraduate students attending the University of Minnesota covers: (1) student expenses, (2) the sources used to pay these expenses, and (3) opinions about present financial assistance policies and practices. Independent variables examined include sex, age, class, recipient/nonrecipient of financial aid, financial self-sufficiency. A summary of the material is not given, but some individual findings are: (1) mean total annual expense in 1974-75 was $2,690; (2) 48 percent of the undergraduates receive some assistance from their parents, but only 14 percent say that parental assistance is the major source for paying these expenses; and (3) 63 percent do not anticipate any loan indebtedness at the time of graduation.
