Net Price Data Source: US Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. Net price defined as “the average yearly price actually charged to first-time, full-time undergraduate students receiving student aid after deducting such aid.” Net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance, which is the sum of published tuition and required fees , books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses.
