The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) has long collected and reported data on tuition, required fees, and room and board charges for first-time, full-time undergraduate (FTFTUG) students. These charges, along with other miscellaneous expenses, constitute what is known as the "published price of attendance" or the "cost of attendance." Section 132 of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires the Department of Education to post information on its College Navigator website about the average net price of attendance for each institution that participates in the Title IV federal student aid program. Under the HEOA, the net price of attendance is to be calculated as the cost of attendance for FTFTUG students minus the total amount of need-based grant aid and merit-based grant aid, from federal, state, and institutional sources divided by the number of FTFTUG students receiving such aid. Additionally, the Act directs the publication of the institutional net price of attendance for FTFTUG Title IV aid recipients by income categories. To meet these mandates, IPEDS now collects information on the net price of attendance for two student groups: (1) FTFTUG students who received grant/scholarship aid from any source (grant recipients) and (2) FTFTUG students who received any Title IV aid (Title IV aid recipients). For the Title IV aid recipients, information on net price is collected by income category. These Web Tables present information on the extent to which the average net price of attendance varies by control and level of institution for both the grant recipient group and the Title IV aid recipient group, and by income levels for the Title IV aid recipient group. Specifically, these Web Tables provide information on the: (1) average net price of attendance during 2006-07 and 2008-09 for FTFTUG students who received grant/scholarship aid, by control and level of institution (table 1 series) and by degree of urbanization, geographic region, and Carnegie classification (table 2 series through table 4 series); (2) average net price of attendance during 2008-09 for FTFTUG students who received any Title IV aid, by control and level of institution (table 5 series) and by degree of urbanization, geographic region, and Carnegie classification (table 6 series through table 8 series); (3) average net price of attendance during 2008-09 for FTFTUG students who received any Title IV aid, by income level and control and level of institution (table 9 series) and by degree of urbanization, geographic region, and Carnegie classification (table 10 series through table 12 series); and (4) average net price of attendance during 2008-09 for FTFTUG students who received any Title IV aid, by urbanicity and control and level of institution (table 13 series), by geographic region and control and level of institution (table 14 series), by institution size and control and level of institution (table 15 series), and by student-to-faculty ratio and control and level of institution (table 16 series). A glossary is included. (Contains 32 tables.)
