Abstract: The National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) is a comprehensive, nationwide study of students enrolled in less-than-2-year institutions, community and junior colleges, 4-year colleges, and major universities located in the United States and Puerto Rico. Undergraduate, graduate and professional school students who receive financial aid, as well as those who do not receive aid, participate in NPSAS. NPSAS collects information on student demographics, family income, education expenses, employment, education aspirations, parental support, and how students and their families meet the costs of postsecondary education. This CD-ROM contains data from 3 NPSAS studies.
