Title: Projected Postsecondary Outcomes of 1992 High School Graduates
Description: This report uses data combined from the third follow-up of the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88/94) and the Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:89/90) to project the postsecondary outcomes of the high school class of 1992. Specifically, it tracks, over a 4-year period, the expected path of college-qualified students who first enrolled in a 4-year college or university in the 1992-93 academic year. The focus of the report is the attainment and persistence rates for a cohort of high school graduates who had completed the necessary steps in high school to be prepared to enter a 4-year college or university.
