Baum, Sandy; Ma, Jennifer; Pender, Matea; Welch, Meredith – College Board, 2016
Data on student aid for 2015-16 confirm that the dramatic increases in aid awarded in 2009-10 and 2010-11 were products of extreme economic circumstances, not harbingers of long-run changes in financing for postsecondary education. Both total federal education loans and federal loans per full-time equivalent (FTE) student declined for the fifth…

Ma, Jennifer; Baum, Sandy; Pender, Matea; Welch, Meredith – College Board, 2016
In 2016-17, published tuition and fee prices rose slightly less than the year before.

Ma, Jennifer; Baum, Sandy; Pender, Matea; Bell, D'Wayne – College Board, 2015

As the nation slowly emerges from the Great Recession, the patterns of student aid are returning to the paths they were on before the economy crashed.
