From 1995-96 to 2007-08, the number of undergraduates in the United States grew from about 16.7 million to 21 million (Horn and Berktold 1998; Wei et al. 2009). In 2007-08, two-thirds of all undergraduates received some type of financial aid, including grants, loans, work-study, or some combination of these types of aid. These Web Tables provide information on undergraduate financing during the 1995-96, 1999-2000, 2003-04, and 2007-08 academic years. Estimates are presented for all undergraduates and for undergraduates who attended public 2- and 4-year, private nonprofit, and for-profit institutions by student and enrollment characteristics. The tables are grouped into three sections. Section 1 presents trends in the average undergraduate price of attendance and tuition and fees, by selected student characteristics. Section 2 shows trends in undergraduate financial aid. The tables display the percentages of undergraduates receiving each of the major types of financial aid and the average amounts received, by selected student and institutional characteristics. Section 3 presents the net price of college by institution type, student's out-of-pocket price, expected family contribution (EFC), financial need, and remaining financial need after all financial aid, by selected student and institutional characteristics. A glossary is included. (Contains 34 tables and 2 endnotes.)
