State expenditures on student aid/undergraduate enrollment at 4-year institutions | State Indicator S-27
State Expenditures on Student Aid per Undergraduate Student
The cost of an undergraduate education can be reduced with financial assistance from the state government, the federal government, or an academic institution. This indicator is calculated by dividing the amount of financial support from state grants to both public and private institutions in the state by the total undergraduate fall enrollment at public and private degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the state. A high value is one indicator of state efforts to provide access to higher education at a time of escalating undergraduate costs.
