Delta project tcs online
Delta Project – TCS Online

  • Trends in College Spending (TCS) Online

  • http://www.deltacostproject.org

  • The Delta Project is focused on the spending part of the college cost problem – how spending relates to access and success, and ways that costs can be controlled without compromising quality. This requires a change in traditional approaches to higher education finance – from a focus on inputs (enrollments) and efficiency measures (funding per student) -- to an integrated view of productivity, and how funds are used to ensure access, equity, and successful learning results.

Delta project
Delta Project

  • AIR will maintain the interactive Web-based data system, Trends in College Spending, which allows the public to search for information on institutional revenues and spending, performance, and enrollment.

  • The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) will maintain the Delta Cost Project’s database as part of its Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). IPEDS conducts annual surveys gathering information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs.
