Abstract

This report begins with a discussion of the percentage of undergraduates receiving various types of financial aid, the sources of the aid, and the average award amounts in 1999-2000. The focus is on loans and grants at the four major types of institutions where undergraduates were enrolled: public 2-year, public 4-year, private not-for-profit 4-year, and private for-profit postsecondary institutions. In addition to the loans received in 1999-2000, there is also a description of the cumulative amount of federal loans that students had ever borrowed as undergraduates. The report also includes a compendium of tables that describe tuition, total price of attendance, and the various types and sources of financial aid in more detail by institutional and student characteristics.
