  • Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance for the institution's largest program. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees, books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses for the institutions largest program. If the total length of program is greater than the academic year length, the total cost of attendance is adjusted for the academic year and the average net price is for the academic year. For programs that are less than the academic year length, the total cost of attendance and the average net price are for the entire length of the program.
  • Beginning students are those who are entering postsecondary education for the first time.
  • Title IV aid to students includes grant aid, work study aid, and loan aid. These include: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant (National SMART Grant), Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Subsidized Direct or FFEL Stafford Loan, and Unsubsidized Direct or FFEL Stafford Loan. For those Title IV recipients, net price is reported by income category and includes students who received federal aid even if none of that aid was provided in the form of grants. While Title IV status defines the cohort of student for which the data are reported, the definition of net price remains the same – total cost of attendance minus grant aid.

  • Depending on the program length, graduation and transfer-out rates can be measured over different lengths of time. The academic years, 2010-11 and 2011-12, are the cohort years students entered an institution. "Normal time" is the typical amount of time it takes full-time students to complete their program from the time they entered an institution. For example, the "normal" amount of time (or 100% time) for many associate's degree programs is 2 years. Not all students complete within the normal time, so graduation rates are measured by other lengths of time as well, including "150% of normal time" (e.g., completion within 3 years for a 2-year program) and "200% of normal time," or twice as long as the normal time (e.g., completion within 4 years for a 2-year program).
