Ability to Pay by Family Income

About this Indicator

This indicator measures the percentage of family income needed to pay the net price of full-time enrollment by family income. The average net price is calculated as the total cost of attendance (tuition and fees, books, supplies, and room and board) minus the average institutional, local, state, and federal grant aid.
