TG publishes new report on state of student aid
TG has released a new edition of the State of Student Aid and Higher Education in Texas. The report contains data on college costs for the 2004-2005 academic year, the sources and types of financial aid available in the state, and the indebtedness of Texas college students, as well as information on Texas educational attainment levels and the state's rapidly changing demographics.
The report presents 92 one-page fact sheets that provide insight on how student aid in Texas compares to other states and to the nation as a whole. The report offers data analyses on several topics:
- State demographics
- Educational attainment
- College costs
- Paying for college
- Grant aid
- State loan programs
- FFELP loans guaranteed by TG
- Student debt
- Defaults and collections
Changes to the new report include the addition of data on Texas college graduation rates, the percent of Texas aid recipients from low-income families, and the number of needy Texas students who are not receiving state grants.
"With the Texas Legislature meeting for its biennial session and Congress preparing to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, it is important for policymakers, the financial aid community, and the public to have access to current and accurate information on the state of higher education in Texas," said George Torres, TG assistant vice president for congressional and legislative relations. "The State of Student Aid and Higher Education in Texas provides an in-depth overview of student financial aid in Texas that can be used for reference and policy development purposes."
For valuable perspectives on trends and issues in higher education and the student financial aid industry, be sure to check out the new report from TG. The report is available on TG Online at www.tgslc.org/pdf/sosa.pdf.
