NOTE: Data represent the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. Student financial aid includes any federal and private loans to students and federal, state/local, and institutional grants and scholarships. Student loans include only loans made directly to students; they do not include Parent PLUS Loans or other loans made directly to parents.
