Data are limited to four-year, bachelor’s degree-granting, Title IV eligible colleges and universities. Financial aid data are based on full-time, for-credit enrolled freshmen. Financial aid data for the 2009-2010 school year were accessed from the National Center for Education Statistics, IPEDS Data Center. Data on average tuition was calculated by multiplying individual institutions’ in-state tuition by the number of undergraduates that were enrolled there in a 12-month period, then aggregated and divided by the total number of undergraduates in the region. Four-year colleges and universities in Silicon Valley included in the analysis are Bethany University, Cogswell Polytechnical College, Menlo College, Notre Dame de Namur University, Palo Alto University, San Jose State University, Santa Clara University, Stanford University, The Art Institute of California and The National Hispanic University.
