Executive Summary (PDF)

Lower income and middle income FTFY dependent undergraduates have similar price of attendance enrollment patterns. Those from the lower income and middle income group use more financial aid than do those in the higher income group. Lower income and middle income FTFY dependent students do not enroll at similar price-of-attendance levels as their counterparts in the higher income group, with the exception of those undergraduates with SAT scores of 1,200 or more.
