Abstract

This report is a descriptive summary of the first follow-up data for the 1990/92 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:90/92). The BPS Study is a comprehensive source of information on enrollment, persistence, and attainment in postsecondary education for students who began their postsecondary education in 1989–90. The BPS data also include detailed information about financial aid, employment, family formation, and civic and political participation of these students. Unlike previous longitudinal studies of postsecondary students, BPS:90/92 includes all first-time students, regardless of when they completed high school.
