NCES 2018428 Working Before, During, and After Beginning at a Public 2-Year Institution: Labor Market Experiences of Community College Students
This Statistics in Brief report describes the employment of students attending public 2-year institutions before they enrolled in postsecondary education for the first time, as well as while they were enrolled in their first year. The report also examines how employment is related to these students’ postsecondary experiences and employment outcomes after exiting postsecondary education. The analyses use data from the 2012/14 Beginning Postsecondary Student Longitudinal Study (BPS:12/14), a nationally representative study of first-time postsecondary students who were interviewed up to 3 years after they began postsecondary education.

NCES 2018410 Repayment of Student Loans as of 2015 Among 1995–96 and 2003–04 First-Time Beginning Students
This First Look report presents selected findings about the repayment of federal student loans using data from the 2015 Federal Student Aid Supplements to two Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Studies (BPS) conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The report focuses on two cohorts of borrowers: those who began their postsecondary education in the 1995–96 academic year (BPS:96/01) and those who began in the 2003–04 academic year (BPS:04/09). The report presents estimates of both cohorts’ cumulative borrowing, repayment, and default statuses as of June 30, 2015, some 20 years after the 1995–96 cohort and 12 years after the 2003–04 cohort began postsecondary education.

REL 2017204 Scaling academic planning in community college: A randomized controlled trial
Community college students often lack an academic plan to guide their choices of coursework to achieve their educational goals, in part because counseling departments typically lack the capacity to advise students at scale. This randomized controlled trial tests the impact of guaranteed access to one of two alternative counseling sessions (group workshops or one-on-one counseling), each of which was combined with targeted “nudging." Outcome measures included scheduling and attending the counseling session, completing an academic plan, and re-enrolling in the following semester. Evidence suggests that both variations on the intervention increase academic plan completion rates by over 20 percentage points compared to a control group that did not receive guaranteed access to a counseling session or the automated nudges. Exploratory evidence suggests that when combined with nudging, the guarantee of workshop counseling is as effective as the guarantee of one-on-one counseling in causing students to schedule and attend academic planning appointments.
