Abstract

This analysis explores College Scorecard information available from the Department of Education’s Open Data Platform. The College Scorecard is an aggregation of data from higher education institutions across the United States for prospective students to research an institution’s cost, loan debt, graduation rate, and retention rate. The Scorecard includes information from institutions that process federal financial aid. Such data is gathered from the Integrated Post-secondary Education Data System (IPEDS), a survey instituted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and student submissions of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). R programming is used to create data visualizations. This study seeks to gain an understanding of financial issues from the totality of colleges in the Scorecard dataset.
