Undergraduate Financial Aid Estimates by Type of Institution in 2011-12. Web Tables. NCES 2014-169
Ifill, Nicole; Shaw, Stacy
National Center for Education Statistics
These Web Tables present estimates of tuition and fees, the total price of attendance (tuition and fees plus living expenses), and several types and combinations of financial aid packages that undergraduates received in 2011-12. The price of an undergraduate education varies widely depending on a number of characteristics, including institution type and attendance status (Berkner and Choy 2008). To take these factors into account, estimates are shown by institution type for those enrolled in public 4-year, private non-profit 4-year, private for-profit 4-year, public 2-year, and private for-profit 2-year institutions. Both for all undergraduates and for those within each institution type, estimates are presented by students' attendance status, dependency status, and income. Many institutions charge full-time/full-year undergraduates higher tuition and fees than their part-time counterparts. Further, eligibility for certain financial aid programs is based upon attendance status: to qualify for a federal Direct Loan, a student must be enrolled at least half time. Therefore, these Web Tables present results for full-time/full-year undergraduates as well as all undergraduates. Students' or their families' income level affects the amount of aid for which students are eligible, and the effects of income depend on whether a student is financially dependent on his or her family or is independent. Consequently, estimates are presented by dependency status and income categories for all undergraduates and undergraduates in each type of institution. Tables 1-4 show the percentage of students receiving aid and the average amount of aid received by aided students enrolled in all types of institutions. Tables 5-8 show the same data for those enrolled in public 4-year institutions; tables 9-12 present the data for those enrolled in private nonprofit 4-year institutions; tables 13-16 show the statistics for those attending private for-profit 4-year institutions; tables 17-20 show estimates for those attending public 2-year institutions; and tables 21-24 show the same data for undergraduates enrolled in private for-profit 2-year institutions.
