From 1995 to 2007, fall enrollment for graduate and professional students increased by 30 percent, from 2 to 2.6 million students (Snyder, Dillow, and Hoffman 2009, tables 206 and 207). Average tuition and fees also went up over this same period; the average full-time tuition and fees paid by graduate students increased 37 percent, in inflation-adjusted terms, from $9,100 to $12,500 (Snyder, Dillow, and Hoffman 2009, table 334). These Web Tables show borrowing rates, average loan amounts, and other aspects of borrowing for graduate students from 1995-96 to 2007-08, using data from four separate administrations of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS): 1995-96, 1999-2000, 2003-04, and 2007-08. Table 1 profiles graduate and professional students by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type through the survey years. Table 2 displays trends in the average total price of attendance and tuition and fees by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. Tables 3 and 4 show trends in the rate of borrowing and the average amount borrowed from any source for federal loans by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. Tables 5 and 6 present trends in graduate students' borrowing rates and average cumulative amounts for those who borrowed only as undergraduates, those who borrowed only as graduate students, and those who borrowed at either level. The data are presented by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. Table 7 presents the percentage of graduate borrowers who received other types of financial aid by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. Table 8 details trends in the average ratio of loans to total aid for graduate borrowers by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. Table 9 compares percentages of graduate students borrowing the full annual Stafford maximum, those borrowing less than the maximum, and those who took no Stafford loan by degree program, attendance intensity, and institution type. A glossary is included. (Contains 18 tables and 3 endnotes.)
