Tuma, John; And Others
This report uses data from the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study of 1993 to examine how undergraduate students enrolled in the 1992-93 academic year financed their education. The report begins with an essay that explores in detail the relationships between the type of institution in which students were enrolled and their total cost of attendance, the distribution of financial aid among students by type of institution, and the net cost of enrollment among aided and non-aided undergraduates. The compendium of tables that follows provides additional data on each of the topics addressed in the essay. In addition, the compendium tables include data on the demographic characteristics of students enrolled in each institution type and on the distribution of financial aid by type (grants, loans, work-study, and other) and data by source (federal, state, institutional, and other). The table compendium (contains four sections which cover: (1) student demographics, (2) the cost of postsecondary education, (3) the distribution of financial aid, and (4) the net costs of postsecondary education. Each section is prefaced by a summary of the finding highlights. Appendixes contain a glossary and technical notes. (JB)
