A Report on Student Financial Aid at Degree-Granting Postsecondary Institutions in New York State: 1985-86 to 1987-88.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Postsecondary Policy Analysis.
Based on data provided by postsecondary institutions, the Higher Education Services Corporation, and units of the State Education Department, this report shows trends in financial aid from state (New York), federal, institutional, and private sources for academic years 1985-86, 1986-87, and 1987-88. The first section provides an overview of all student aid funds on a statewide basis. It presents trends in total funds available to all students; examines trends in aid per student, using full-time equivalent students (FTE) as a measure of enrollment; and compares aid trends to changes in undergraduate expenses, other economic indicators and enrollment trends. The following section contains detailed tables showing funds and recipients for specific aid programs, with separate tables for pre- and post-baccalaureate students in each sector and at each type of institution within sectors. The appendices to the report contain a glossary of terms; a description of student aid data sources and data adjustments; and a list of institutions included in each sector and type category used in this report. Findings indicated that during this period total aid per FTE did not increase as rapidly as either tuition or total expenses in any sector except proprietary institutions. (DB)
