We are VERY proud to announce that the Class of 2012 earned $1,840,820 in scholarship money. That is an average of more than $108,000 PER STUDENT!

The National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) is a large survey of college students to gather data on how they paid for school. It is conducted every 3-4 years by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) at the US Department of Education. The 2007-08 NPSAS surveyed about 114,000 undergraduate students and 14,000 graduate and professional students. This is a statistically significant representative sample of the student population. Here are the results:
So, according to the most recent statistics (07-08) our EC students earned approximately $105,760 MORE than the average american college/university student!
