|Title:||First-Time Postsecondary Students in 2011–12: Three-Year Retention and Attainment at First Institution|
This set of Web Tables is the second in a series of four that together provide key information about first-time postsecondary students' characteristics and their 3-year retention, persistence, attainment, withdrawal, stopout, and transfer rates. This particular set of Web Tables presents 3-year retention and attainment rates at the first institution students attended for all 2011–12 first-time postsecondary students and for students beginning at institutions of different control (i.e., public, private nonprofit, and for-profit) and level (e.g., less-than-2-year, 2-year, 4-year). The tables indicate the percentages of 2011–12 first-time postsecondary students who attained a certificate, an associate's degree, or a bachelor's degree by spring 2014 at the institution where they first enrolled. If they had not attained a credential at the first institution, these tables specify whether they were still enrolled at the first institution, had enrolled at a different institution, or had not enrolled at any institution after leaving the first institution.
The first set of Web Tables in this series, entitled First-Time Postsecondary Students in 2011–12: A Profile (https://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2016136), provides a profile of America's first-time postsecondary students.
The third set of Web Tables, entitled First-Time Postsecondary Students in 2011–12: Three-Year Persistence and Attainment at Any Institution (https://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2016138), highlights 3-year persistence and attainment rates at any institution attended.
The final set of Web Tables, entitled First-Time Postsecondary Students in 2011–12: Three-Year Withdrawal, Stopout, and Transfer Rates (https://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2016139), presents the year-by-year cumulative rates at which first-time students withdrew from postsecondary education without a degree and the rate at which students stopout or transfer.
