Student Financing of Undergraduate Education: 2011-12. Web Tables. NCES 2015-173
National Center for Education Statistics
Approximately 23 million students enrolled in undergraduate postsecondary education in the United States during the 2011-12 academic year (Simone et al. 2013). The Web Tables in this report provide a comprehensive source (2011-12 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study [NPSAS:12]) of information on the financial aid that was awarded to these students. The tables include estimates of tuition and fees, price of attendance, and financial aid shown by the enrollment and demographic characteristics of students. The tables are similar to those based on the 1995-96, 1999-2000, 2003-04, and 2007-08 National Postsecondary Student Aid Studies (Bersudskaya and Wei 2011) and are grouped into five separate sections. Section 1 (Tables 1.1 to 1.2) shows the percentile distribution of family income, tuition and fees, and price of attendance among all undergraduates and separately among those who attended school full time for the full year. Section 2 (Tables 2.1A to 2.2D) presents undergraduates' average tuition and fees and average total price of attendance by institution type and selected student characteristics. Section 3 (Tables 3.1A to 3.9D) looks at the various types and average amounts of financial aid that undergraduates received--federal, state, and institutional aid, including Veterans' benefits--also by type of institution attended and selected student characteristics. Section 4 (Tables 4.1A to 4.4B) reports the average out-of-pocket net price (total price of attendance minus total aid); average net price of attendance (total price of attendance minus all grants); and average net tuition (tuition and fees minus all grants) by institution type and selected student characteristics. Section 5 (Tables 5.1 to 5.4B) presents estimates related to students' expected family contribution (EFC), financial need, and remaining need after financial aid is taken into consideration by such characteristics as attendance status, race/ethnicity, sex, family income, and military status. These Web Tables were authored by Jonathan Paslov and Paul Skomsvold of RTI International.
