Insitute for College Access & Success offers new database on economic diversity of college students

The Foundation Center's website noted this new website of the Institute for College Access and Success:
Users can view and compare 128 different data elements for each of 3,000 accredited colleges anduniversities. Data for academic years 2000-01 and 2003-04 are available for most elements.
Also from the website:
The data on this website show the extent to which public and private colleges and universities enroll undergraduates from various economic, ethic and racial backgrounds. While racial and ethnic diversity data have long been available, colleges are not required to systematically collect information on students' income levels. To help fill this gap, they have used federal financial aid information as a proxy.
