NCES Releases New Data on Postsecondary Enrollment, Graduation Rates, and Finances

[report cover]Postsecondary data show that average net prices -- what students are charged after deducting grant aid -- range from $10,747 at public 4-year institutions to $23,057 at private, for-profit 4-year institutions. Data on net price charged by individual institutions are released for the first time by NCES.

These institutional level data are available for students on College Navigator and for researchers in the IPEDS Data Center.

Enrollment in Postsecondary Institutions, Fall 2009; Graduation Rates, 2003 & 2006 Cohorts; and Financial Statistics, Fiscal Year 2009 presents findings from the spring 2010 data collection of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) from the National Center for Education Statistics within the Institute of Education Sciences. This collection included five components: student financial aid for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students for the 2009-10 academic year; enrollment for fall 2009; graduation rates within 150 percent of normal program completion; graduation rates within 200 percent ; and finances for fiscal year 2009.

Other findings include:

* In fall 2009, Title IV institutions in the United States enrolled a total of 21 million undergraduate and graduate students; 62 percent were enrolled in 4-year institutions, 37 percent were enrolled in 2-year institutions, and 2 percent were enrolled in less-than-2-year institutions.

* Approximately 57 percent of full-time, first-time bachelor's or equivalent degree-seekers in 2003 attending 4-year institutions completed a bachelor's or equivalent degree at the institution where they began their studies within 6 years.

* During the 2008-09 academic year, 79 percent of the 3.1 million full-time, first-time degree/ certificate-seeking undergraduates attending U.S. Title IV institutions received financial aid. This includes 79 percent of those attending public 4-year institutions, 87 percent of those attending private not-for-profit 4-year institutions, and 86 percent of those attending private for-profit 4-year institutions.
