The Office of Institutional Research (OIR) has a new student financial aid report. This new report includes admission and financial aid data for all undergraduate students (degree seeking and non-degree seeking, full and part time) by campus. The reports are by aid year which includes three terms (fall, spring, and summer) and starts with data from Fall 1999. Currently, there are eleven aid years of data available.
Admissions related data includes the number of new student (freshmen and transfer) that have applied, been admitted, and enrolled for an entire aid year (fall, spring, and summer terms).
Financial aid related data includes the number of students receiving aid, PELL Grants, and University Scholarships. Average aid amounts for the year by category is also included. Federal cost of attendance information for new freshmen that are Minnesota residents is also available.
The new reports also include average loan debt amount broken down by Minnesota residents and Non-Minnesota residents. The amount is calculated for those students that graduated during the report aid year. The average loan debt amount is further broken out to include and exclude PLUS (parent) loans. The loan amounts are those processed and captured in the University of Minnesota student systems, and would not include personal loans made by the student or parent. Average Loan Debts are not available prior to Fall 2003.
Special thanks to all the folks in the Office of Student Finance for their help on this new report.
