What Students Pay for College: Changes in Net Price of College Attendance Between 1992-93 and 1999-2000 - This NCES report examines the most recent trends in the net price of college attendance (price includes tuition, living expenses and other nontuition costs), analyzing changes in various measures of net price between 1992-93 and 1999-2000. Despite increases in tuition, once all grant aid combined (including federal, state and institutional aid) was subtracted from the total price of attendance, low-income students did not pay a higher price on average in 1999-2000 than they did in 1992-93. In almost all cases, however, middle- and high-income students did pay more on average to attend in 1999-2000 than in 1992-93. (Laura Horn, Christina Chang Wei, Ali Berker, NCES, 2002)...
