‡Reporting standards not met. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 50 percent or greater.
1 Numbers of undergraduates may not equal figures reported in other tables, since these data are based on a sample survey of students who enrolled at any time during the academic year.
2 Includes only those students who borrowed to finance their undergraduate education. Excludes loans from family sources.
3 Includes students who reported that they were awarded aid but did not specify the source of the aid.
4 Includes Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense benefits.
5 Data have been revised from previously published figures.
NOTE: Excludes students whose attendance status was not reported. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because some students receive multiple types of aid and aid from different sources. Data include Puerto Rico.
