A Study of Non-Residential Postsecondary Student Expenditures. Product Number 2. Report on Existing Data.
Deane, Robert T.; And Others
The importance of obtaining information on nonresidential student expenditures has increased in recent years for two principal reasons: (1) the proportion of college students living off campus has risen sharply over the last decade; and (2) the cost of living has risen dramatically. Most student budget information to date has been related largely to the expenditures of college students who live on campus. Financial aid officers, prospective students, and parents need information on actual costs of living off campus while attending college. For this reason, a study was undertaken to provide estimates of national postsecondary student expenditures. Data are presented on costs related to housing, utilities, and food. (Author/MSE)
