    Abstract: The 2019-20 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study 
(NPSAS:20) is a nationally representative cross-sectional study of how 
students and their families finance education beyond high school in a 
given academic year. NPSAS is conducted by the National Center for

the 1986-87 academic year and has been fielded every 2 to 4 years 
since. This request is to conduct the 11th cycle in the NPSAS series 
that will be conducted during the 2019-20 academic year. NPSAS:20 will 
be both nationally- and state-representative. NPSAS:20 also will serve 
as the base year data collection for the 2020 cohort of the Beginning 
Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:20), a study of first-
time beginning postsecondary students that will be conducted three 
years (BPS:20/22) and six years (BPS:20/25) after beginning their

of 2019. The materials and procedures are based on those developed for 
previous institution-based data collections, including NPSAS:16, BPS:12
