Among the study’s findings:

  • Nationally, 12 percent of students who started at four-year public institutions completed at an institution other than the starting institution. In 20 states, students who started at four-year public institutions had a higher completion rate at another institution with Minnesota having the highest rate at 27 percent.
  • 3.2 percent of all students who started at a four-year public institution received their first degree/certificate at a two-year institution. The rate was over 5 percent in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Conversely, 9.4 percent of all students who started at a two-year public institution received their first credential at a four-year institution. In seven states, more than 10 percent did so with the highest being 13.8 percent.
  • In eight states, more than one in six students who started at a two-year public institution completed at a four-year institution within six years with or without receiving a credential at a two-year institution (compared to 15 percent nationally). Virginia had the highest rate, with one in five students who started at a two-year public graduating from a four-year institution.
  • In nine states, more than 10 percent of students who started at a four-year public institution and received a degree ended up graduating in a different state (compared to 6 percent nationally). The rate was much higher in Alaska (28 percent) and North Dakota (20 percent).
  • In three states, more than 10 percent of students who started at a two-year public institution and later graduated did so in a different state (compared to 5.6 percent nationally).
  • In 14 states and in the District of Columbia, over 10 percent of the students who started at a four-year private nonprofit institution and received a credential did so in a different state (compared to 8.8 percent nationally).
  • In nearly every state, traditional-age students starting at four-year public institutions had higher six-year completion rates than adult learners. The smallest gap was in Arizona (1 percentage point) and the highest in Vermont (42 percentage points).
  • In 13 states, over 75 percent of the exclusively part-time students at four-year public institutions had not received a credential and were not enrolled at the end of six years (compared to 70 percent nationally).

The Signature Report State Supplement includes detailed tables, providing a state-by-state overview of college completion outcomes within the four-year public, two-year public, and four-year private nonprofit sectors.

This report was supported by a grant from the Lumina Foundation.

Lumina Foundation, an Indianapolis-based private foundation, is committed to enrolling and graduating more students from college — especially 21st century students: low-income students, students of color, first-generation students and adult learners. Lumina’s goal is to increase the percentage of Americans who hold high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by 2025. Lumina pursues this goal in three ways: by identifying and supporting effective practice, through public policy advocacy, and by using our communications and convening power to build public will for change.

Introduction


As a supplement to Completing College: A National View of Student Attainment Rates, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center’s fourth publication in the Signature Report series, this report focuses on six-year student success outcomes and college completion rates by state. Results are presented in three sections that show state-level outcomes for students who started college at (a) four-year public institutions, (b) two-year public institutions, and (c) four-year private nonprofit institutions. Each section provides a state-by-state overview of college completion outcomes within the sector overall (Tables 1, 7, 13). In addition, results are included with sets of tables showing completion rates by state for students who were 24 years old or younger at first entry to college (Tables 5, 11, 17), who were over 24 years old at first entry (Tables 6, 12, 18), and whose enrollments were exclusively full time (Tables 2, 8, 14), exclusively part time (Tables 3, 9, 15), or included both full- and part-time enrollment (i.e., mixed enrollment) across the six-year study period (Tables 4, 10, 16). Tables showing first completions across state lines are also provided as a fourth section within the results (Tables 19, 20, 21). Appendix A lists coverage rates for each institution type within each state. Further context on how the state-level results were derived is available in Appendix B, which provides unique student headcounts by state and institution type.

As presented in Completing College: A National View, the overall six-year completion rate for first-time degree-seeking students who started college in fall 2006 was 54.1 percent, including 12.1 percent who completed at an institution different from their starting institution. In other words, more than one in five students who completed a degree did so at an institution other than the one where they first enrolled — a situation that renders their successful outcomes invisible within traditional graduation rate calculations. The number was closer to one in four for traditional-age students and more than one in three for those who started at public two-year institutions (see Table A below for national results on six-year outcomes by starting institution type).

Table A. Six-Year Outcomes by Starting Institution Type
Starting Institution Type Total Completion Rate First Completion at Starting Institution First Completion at a Different Institution (Anywhere in U.S.) Still Enrolled (at Any Institution) Not Enrolled (at Any Institution)

Four-Year Private For-Profit 42.8% 37.8% 3.0% 1.9% 13.8% 43.3%
Two-Year Public 36.3% 23.9% 9.4% 3.0% 20.1% 43.6%
Two-Year Private Nonprofit 54.2% 42.6% 8.6% 3.0% 13.5% 32.3%
Two-Year Private For-Profit 61.8% 58.1% 2.4% 1.2% 8.4% 29.8%

 

Further findings from Completing College: A National View showed that gains from completions elsewhere were greater for traditional-age students (age 24 or younger at first entry) than for older students (over age 24 at first entry). Overall, however, there was a large gap between the completion rates of younger and older students, with the latter group having a much lower six-year completion rate (57 percent vs. 42 percent).

Building on these findings presented in Completing College: A National View, this follow-up report explores college completion rates for each state where the historical data coverage1 for the study cohort was 65 percent or higher. Both Completing College: A National View and this supplemental report focus on the cohort entering college as first-time students in fall 2006, following them through May 31, 2012, and highlighting six-year student outcomes including degree and certificate completion and continuing enrollment (persistence). Completions were identified using a combination of degree/certificate award records submitted by institutions as part of their participation in DegreeVerifySM, along with StudentTrackerSM enrollment records indicating completions of a certificate or degree. Details on weighting and the imputation of missing data can be found in Completing College: A National View, Appendix A.

COHORT AND DATA DEFINITIONS

The cohort examined in this study is made up of first-time degree-seeking students of any age who started their postsecondary studies in the fall of 2006, nearly 1.9 million students. First-time status was established by confirming that a student (1) did not show any postsecondary enrollment record in the four years prior to summer 2006 and (2) did not receive a degree or certificate from any postsecondary institution prior to fall 2006, according to Clearinghouse data. Fall 2006 enrollments were defined as enrollment during any term beginning between August 15 through October 31 inclusive.2 Complete details regarding the study cohort are included in the introduction and Appendices A and C of Completing College: A National View.

Our approach in Completing College: A National View as well as in this supplement contributes a new, more differentiated view of student pathways by considering the entire course of students’ college experience in the definition of enrollment intensity. By considering students’ enrollment intensity in all terms across the six-year study period, this report differentiates between students who enrolled exclusively full time or part time and those who from term to term varied their enrollment intensity (i.e., “mixed enrollment students”). Finally, this report’s results are differentiated by students’ age at first entry, considering the pathways of students who were over age 24 when they first entered college separately from those of students who were age 24 or younger at first entry. (For a full discussion of data, definitions, and limitations, please see Completing College: A National View, Appendix A.)

HIGHLIGHTING STATE-LEVEL RESULTS

The body of this supplemental report presents student outcomes by the state of the institution where the student first entered college — not the student’s residential home state. Historical data coverage for the cohort identified in this study varies somewhat across states and across institution types within states (see Appendix A of this report for coverage rates by state and institution type). Accordingly, we have included state-by-state results for students who started at four-year public, two-year public, and four-year private nonprofit institutions3, including under each of these categories only those states for which the historical data coverage for the cohort is 65 percent or higher. Using this approach, we produced tables showing results for 48 and 36 of the 50 states for four-year public and two-year public institutions respectively, and 38 states plus the District of Columbia for four-year private nonprofit institutions. Due to low historical coverage, students who started at private for-profit institutions are not included in this report (note that all states and sectors were included in the Completing College: A National View). Enrollments and completions subsequent to Fall 2006 are included in the results, regardless of institution type.

Table B, below, shows which states are included in the tables presented for each institution type in this supplement to the national report. As shown in the table, states with historical coverage lower than 65 percent for a given institution type are excluded from the report.

Finally, to further guide readers regarding coverage and, consequently, the relative confidence with which the results should be interpreted, we have divided states into groups according to three levels of data coverage. Within each of the results tables that follow, states showing historical coverage rates between 65 and 79 percent for the indicated institution type are listed as low-coverage states. Likewise, states that show historical coverage rates from 80 to 89 percent are grouped together under a “medium” coverage category. Those with historical coverage rates of 90 percent or higher are listed together as high-coverage states.

1 Due to the need to establish students’ first-time status, only institutions that submitted enrollment data dating back to June 1, 2002 to the Clearinghouse are included in the report. Historical coverage rates are based on these institutions.

2 Because 16 Kentucky public two-year institutions began the 2006 fall term on August 14, enrollments at these institutions were included as an exception in order to provide the most representative results possible from that state.

3 Students who started at multistate four-year nonprofit institutions were excluded from this study. Multistate institutions are defined as institutions operating in more than one geographical state within the U.S.

* Due to the need to establish students’ first-time status, only institutions that submitted enrollment data to the Clearinghouse dating back to June 1, 2002 are included in the report. Historical coverage rates are calculated as IPEDS Enrollments of institutions included in the report divided by Total IPEDS Enrollment for that state and institution type.

** Current coverage rates are calculated as IPEDS Enrollments of current active participants in the Clearinghouse’s Enrollment Reporting service divided by Total IPEDS Enrollment for that state and institution type.


Appendix B: Unique Student Headcounts by State and Institution Type


Appendix B provides unique student headcounts by state for each institution type. Results are included showing how the final data set was created, drawing from the full cohort of all students enrolled in each sector and state, selecting out students identified as first-time-in-college, and finally excluding students identified as nondegree-seeking and applying a few other conditions. (For further detail on the definition of degree-seeking status and other exclusions applied, please see Completing College: A National View, Appendix A at Signature Report #4.) Counts from the final data set (Fall 2006 First-Time Degree-Seeking Cohort) are further broken out by student enrollment status and age at first entry.
