Last fall, President Obama unveiled a plan to promote college affordability by changing the way the federal government distributes student financial aid. The proposal calls for a federal college ratings system that appraises colleges on measures of access, affordability, and student success.
Using details from the White House’s description of the proposal and data from the federal Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the following chart takes a look at 1,716 four-year colleges and universities to measure their graduation rates (success), net price (affordability), and the share of students enrolled who receive Pell grants (access).
