This is the First Look at the results of the 2007-08 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:08), the most comprehensive, nationally representative survey of student financing of postsecondary education in the United States. About 114,000 undergraduate students and 14,000 graduate and first professional students were randomly selected from more than 1,600 postsecondary institutions. The report describes the percentages of students receiving various types of financial aid and average amounts received, by type of institution attended, attendance pattern, dependency status, and income level. Two appendixes include: (1) Glossary, which includes information about the variables used in each table; and (2) NPSAS:08 Technical Notes and Methodology. (Contains 17 tables and 11 footnotes.) [For "2003-04 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:04). Student Financial Aid Estimates for 2003-04. NCES 2005-158," see ED484516.]
