|Title:||A Profile of the Enrollment Patterns and Demographic Characteristics of Undergraduates at For-Profit Institutions|
|Description:||This Statistics in Brief profiles the demographic, background, and enrollment characteristics of undergraduates attending for-profit postsecondary institutions in 2012. Based on data from the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS), the report examines the change in for-profit enrollment over time and the degree programs and fields in which students at for-profit institutions were enrolled in 2012, as well as studentsí demographic, socioeconomic, family, and background characteristics. The report includes comparisons among levels of for-profit institutions (i.e., less-than-2-year, 2-year, and 4-year) and comparisons of students enrolled in for-profit institutions with students enrolled in public and nonprofit institutions.|
