Description: The 1996/01 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:96/01) restricted-use data file contains data on a nationally representative sample of students who began postsecondary education for the first time in the 1995-96 academic year. These sample members were interviewed in their first, third, and sixth year since entering college. These record-level data are based on student interviews and other administrative data sources and allow users to examine topics related to enrollment, persistence, and degree attainment over six academic years, from 1995-96 to 2000-01. The file includes data from 2015 Federal Student Aid Supplement, which appended student loan data from the National Student Loan Data System through 2015.
