Title:  Descriptive Summary of 199596 Beginning Postsecondary Students: Three Years Later, With an Essay on Students Who Started at Less-Than-4-Year Institutions.
Description: This report examines the persistence and degree attainment after three years for students who began postsecondary education in 199596. The essay focuses on students in less-than-4-year institutions, comparing those who started at public institutions with those who started at private, for-profit institutions. The analysis examines degree programs, goals, and enrollment patterns for the two sectors. One of the main questions addressed is why students who begin at less-than-4-year public institutions have lower rates of attainment than those who begin at private, for-profit institutions.
