Student Financing of Undergraduate Education: 2007-08. Web Tables. NCES 2010-162
Wei, Christina Chang
National Center for Education Statistics
In 2007-08, approximately 21 million students were enrolled in undergraduate postsecondary education in the United States. These Web Tables provide a comprehensive source of information on financial aid that was awarded to undergraduate students during the 2007-08 academic year. Included are estimates of tuition, price of attendance, and financial aid, shown by the enrollment and demographic characteristics of students. The tables are similar to those produced for the 1995-96, 1999-2000, and 2003-04 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) reports on student financing of undergraduate education, and are grouped into five separate sections. Section 1 displays the percentile distribution among all undergraduates for family income, tuition, and price of attendance. These distributions were used to create the categories for these variables in the subsequent sections. Section 2 shows undergraduates' average tuition and fees and average price of attendance. The price of attendance includes books and supplies, room and board (or housing and meal allowances for off-campus students), transportation, and other personal living expenses. Section 3 looks at the various types of financial aid that undergraduates received--federal, state, and institutional aid and combined amounts--by type of institution attended. Section 4 shows net tuition (tuition and fees minus all grants), net price of attendance (price minus all grants), the out-of-pocket net price (price minus all aid), and financial need. Section 5 examines students' dependency and attendance status, residence, race/ethnicity, gender, citizenship, family income, and their distribution by the type of institution attended. A glossary is included. (Contains 2 endnotes and 123 tables.)
