†Not applicable.
‡Reporting standards not met (too few cases for a reliable estimate).
1 Includes students who reported they were awarded aid but did not specify the source or type of aid.
2 Includes Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense benefits.
3 Includes Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS).
4 Details on federal and nonfederal work-study participants are not available.
5 Includes students who were single, divorced, or widowed.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because some students receive multiple types of aid and aid from different sources. Part-time or part-year undergraduates include students enrolled part time for 9 or more months and students enrolled less than 9 months either part time or full time. Data include undergraduates in degree-granting and non-degree-granting institutions. Data include Puerto Rico. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Data have been revised from previously published figures.
