Abstract

This report describes the enrollment, persistence, and degree attainment of students who began postsecondary education for the first time in the 1995-96 academic year. It covers the experiences of these first-time beginners over a period of 6 academic years, from 1995-96 to 2000-01, and provides information about the rates at which students attained degrees, transferred to other institutions, and left postsecondary education without attaining degrees. The report is based on the 1996/01 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:96/01), an NCES survey that provides data describing a nationally representative sample of first-time students who entered postsecondary education during the 1995-96 academic year
