These tables provide comprehensive information on undergraduates who were enrolled in U.S. postsecondary institutions during the 2007-08 academic year. Estimates for enrolled students are presented by attendance status, degree program, undergraduate major, average grades, student characteristics, financial aid status and credit card debt, work, community service, voting, disability status, and distance and remedial education. These tables are similar to those produced for the 1995-96, 1999-2000, and 2003-04 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) undergraduate profiles, and they are grouped into six sections: Section 1 focuses on postsecondary enrollment and attendance, displaying estimates for all undergraduates by institution level, control and type, student class level, attendance status, distance from home, community college attendance, and participation in distance education. Section 2 provides percentage distributions of all undergraduates by degree program, undergraduate major, and average grades. Section 3 presents estimates by student characteristics, including sex, race/ethnicity, age, dependency status, income, marital status, responsibility for dependents, high school completion status, local residence while enrolled, citizenship status, and parents' education. Section 4 looks at financial aid and credit card debt. The analysis summarizes financial aid among all, dependent, and independent undergraduates, as well as the percentage of students with credit cards in their own name and, for those who carried a balance, the average and median monthly balance. Section 5 explores students' work, community service participation, and voting behavior. Estimates are reported by the number of hours spent working while enrolled, the amount and type of community service, and whether students were registered to vote and had ever voted. Section 6 presents estimates of undergraduate enrollment by students' disability status and remedial education coursetaking. A glossary is included. (Contains 68 tables and 2 endnotes.)
