†Not applicable.
1 Numbers of part-time or part-year postbaccalaureate students may not equal figures reported in other tables, since these data are based on a sample survey of all postbaccalaureate students enrolled at any time during the school year.
2 Includes students who reported they were awarded aid, but did not specify the source of aid.
3 Includes students who received teaching or research assistantships and/or participated in work-study programs.
4 Formerly Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL).
5 Formerly National Direct Student Loans (NDSL). Includes subsidized amounts only.
6 Fellowship estimates for 1992-93 were based primarily on information provided by institutions and are not comparable to data for 1999-2000 and later years, which were based on information provided by both students and institutions.
NOTE: Excludes students whose attendance status was not reported. Total includes some students whose level of study or control of institution was unknown. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because some students receive aid from multiple sources. Data include Puerto Rico. Some data have been revised from previously published figures. Standard errors appear in parentheses.
