NOTE: Data are for the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Tuition and fees at public institutions are the lower of either in-district or in-state tuition and fees. Excludes students who previously attended another postsecondary institution or who began their studies on a part-time basis. Data are for degree-granting institutions, which grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs, and U.S. service academies. Data are weighted by the number of first-time, full-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students at the institution who were awarded Title IV aid. Title IV aid includes grant aid, work-study aid, and loan aid. Constant dollars are based on the Consumer Price Index, prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, adjusted to an academic-year basis. Figures are plotted based on unrounded data.
