Title:  201112 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:12) Price Estimates for Attending Postsecondary Education Institutions
Description: This First Look publication provides price estimates for attending postsecondary education institutions using data from the 201112 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:12), the most comprehensive, nationally representative survey of student financing of postsecondary education in the United States. The survey includes about 95,000 undergraduate and 16,000 graduate students attending 1,500 postsecondary institutions in the 50 states and the District of Columbia (prior cycles of NPSAS also included institutions from Puerto Rico). The report describes the overall price of attendance (including tuition and fees, books and materials, housing, food, transportation, and personal expenses) associated with attending 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities. The report also examines net price (the price of attendance minus financial aid).
