Drawing upon data from the 2007-08 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:08), a nationally representative survey of all postsecondary students, this Statistics in Brief offers an overview of the enrollment characteristics of graduate and first-professional students, when they started their programs, how they combined school and work, the price of attending, and the types and amounts of aid they receive to help pay for their education in 2007-08. Except where otherwise indicated, it includes students enrolled at public, private nonprofit, and for-profit 4-year institutions. Data are reported separately by degree level and within level, for selected degree programs with sufficient numbers to report separately. Financial aid information is presented for all students in a program regardless of whether they attended full or part time. Details on financial aid for full-time, full-year attendees can be found in Cataldi and Ho (2010b). Information on student demographic characteristics can be found in Cataldi and Ho (2010a). (Contains 17 figures and 13 footnotes.)
