Figure CL-4. Average total price, grants, and net price for full-time, full-year, dependent undergraduates at 4-year institutions, by institution control: Academic years 19992000, 200304, and 200708


[In constant 200910 dollars]
Average total price, grants, and net price for full-time, full-year, dependent undergraduates at 4-year institutions, by institution control: Academic years 19992000, 200304, and 200708

NOTE: Full time refers to students who attended full time (as defined by the institution) for the full year (at least 9 months). Net price is an estimate of the cash outlay that students and their families need to make in a given year to cover educational expenses. Averages were computed for all students, including those who did not receive financial aid. Data were adjusted by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) to constant 200910 dollars. For more information on the CPI-U, see supplemental note 10. Estimates exclude students who were not U.S. citizens or permanent residents and therefore ineligible for federal student aid and students who attended more than one institution in a year, due to the difficulty of matching information on price and aid. Detail may not sum to totals due to rounding.
