Benchmarks: Measures of College Affordability and Student Aid in North Carolina

This report provides a longitudinal view of the affordability of higher education at the state's public universities and the availability of student aid to North Carolina residents attending postsecondary institutions in the state through a wide variety of programs. The report assesses affordability measures that are designed to reveal, over time, changes in college attendance rates, net prices paid by various income groups for college attendance, and cumulative education indebtedness incurred by undergraduates in the state. It also provides a detailed review of available student aid, documenting the sources and magnitude of aid available and changes in its volume over a ten year period.
