The National Postsecondary Student Aid Study, 2011-12 (NPSAS:12), is a study that is part of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) program. NPSAS:12 (https://nces.ed.gov/surveys/npsas/about.asp) is a cross-sectional survey that is designed to compile a comprehensive research dataset, based on student-level records, on financial aid provided by the federal government, the states, postsecondary institutions, employers, and private agencies, along with student demographic and enrollment data. The study was conducted using multiple sources, including institutional records, government databases, and student interviews. To be eligible to participate in the study, students have to be enrolled in a postsecondary institution. The data are representative of all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in postsecondary institutions in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia that were eligible to participate in the federal financial aid programs in Title IV of the Higher Education Act.
