Costs of Attending College. A Study of Student Expenditures and Sources of Income. No. 9.
Hollis, Ernest V.; And Others
In an effort to throw some light on the character of the costs students incur in attending college and on their sources of income for this purpose, the Office of Education in 1953 studied the problem as it was faced by full-time, single undergraduate students in 110 colleges in 41 states and the District of Columbia. Data include: student expenditures for attending college (capital, current, and total; comparisons by sex; mean versus median; comparisons by regions, fields, and place of residence; costs at four types of residence; major items; public versus private costs; and living costs); major sources of students income (family income and size; comparisons by sex; long-term savings; student earnings; scholarships; family contributions; and comparisons by college type); conclusions and related issues; and information on the survey itself.
