Among the study’s findings:

  • Nationally, 13% of students who started at four-year public institutions completed at an institution other than the starting institution. In 18 states, students who started at four-year public institutions had a higher completion rate elsewhere, with Minnesota having the highest rate at 26 percent followed by Missouri and Nebraska each with 19 percent.
  • 3.6 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 five percent in Arkansas, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
  • In seven states, more than 20 percent of the students who started in two-year public institutions completed at a four-year institution (with or without first receiving a credential at a two-year institution) within six years, with Kansas having the highest rate at 26 percent followed by Virginia at 23 percent.
  • In 14 states, at least one in every five women who started at two-year public institutions completed at a four-year institution. Only in three states did at least 20 percent of men who started in a two-year public institution complete at a four-year institution.
  • In four states (Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, Washington), the completion rate at the starting institution was over 70 percent for students who started in four-year private nonprofit institutions. In each of these states the total completion rate for students who started in four-year private nonprofit institutions was over 80 percent.
  • In 15 states, the percent of students starting in a two-year public institution and completing a credential who graduated at an out-of-state institution was higher than the 6 percent national average with the highest being in Kansas and Wyoming (10 percent).
  • In most states, traditional-age students starting at four-year public institutions had higher completion rates than the delayed entry (age 21-24) and adult learner (over age 24) groups. In five states (Arizona, California, Illinois, Michigan, Texas), delayed entry students had a higher completion rate than traditional-age students. In Arizona, adult learners had a 4 percentage point higher completion rate than traditional-age students.
  • In seven states, at least one in three exclusively part-time students at four-year public institutions received a credential (compared to 20 percent nationally). In 18 states, more than 70 percent of students in this category had not received a credential and were not enrolled at the end of six years (compared to 69 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 – Fall 2007 Cohort (2013), hereafter “Completing College,” this report focuses on six-year student success outcomes and college completion rates by state. The results are displayed in three sets of tables organized by institution type, showing each state’s outcomes for students who started postsecondary education at four-year public institutions, two-year public institutions, and four-year private nonprofit institutions. Each set of tables provides state-level overviews of college completion outcomes. Further results are included, showing state-level six-year outcomes for students:

  • By enrollment intensity across the six-year study period — exclusively full time (Tables 2, 11, 20), exclusively part time (Tables 3, 12, 21), and mixed enrollment (Tables 4, 13, 22);
  • By age at first entry to college — age 20 and younger (Tables 5, 14, 23), over age 20 through age 24 (Tables 6, 15, 24), and over age 24 (Tables 7, 16, 25);
  • By gender — women and men who started at each institution type (Tables 8, 17, 26 and 9, 18, 27, respectively).

As presented in Completing College, the overall six-year completion rate for first-time-in-college degree-seeking students who started college in fall 2007 was 56.1 percent, including 13.1 percent who completed at an institution different from their starting institution. In other words, nearly one in four students who completed a degree did so at an institution other than the one where they first enrolled. The number was closer to one in three for traditional-age students and greater yet for those who started at two-year public institutions. Findings from Completing College also showed that gains from completions elsewhere were higher for traditional-age students (age 20 and younger at first entry) than for delayed entry students (over age 20 through age 24 at first entry) and adult learners (over age 24 at first entry). Six-year completion rates for the fall of 2007 national cohort also showed a gender gap of 6.7 percentage points in favor of women.

The total completion rates for students who started at each of the three largest institution categories ranged from 39.9 percent for students who started at two‐year public institutions to 63.4 percent for those who started at four‐year public institutions and 72.9 percent for students who started at four‐year private nonprofit institutions, see Table i (see Completing College for further discussion). The overall proportion of students completing elsewhere, however, was roughly the same for students who started at any of these institution types: about 13 to 14 percent of the starting cohort.

Building on the findings presented in Completing College, this follow-up report explores college completion rates for each state where the Clearinghouse historical data coverage for the study cohort was 65 percent or higher. Both Completing College and this supplemental report focus on the cohort entering college as first-time1 students in fall 2007, following them through May 31, 2013, 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 the Clearinghouse’s DegreeVerifySM and StudentTrackerSM services. Details on weighting and the imputation of missing data can be found in Appendix A of Completing College.

1 Due to the need to establish students’ first-time status, only institutions that submitted enrollment data dating back to June 1, 2003 to the Clearinghouse are included in the report. Historical coverage rates are based on these institutions.

COHORT AND DATA DEFINITIONS

The cohort examined in this study is made up of first-time degree-seeking students who started their postsecondary studies in fall 2007, nearly 2.4 million students. Fall 2007 enrollments were defined as enrollment during any term beginning August 13 through October 31, inclusive. 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 2007 and (2) did not receive a degree or certificate from any postsecondary institution prior to fall 2007, according to Clearinghouse data. An exception was made for former dual enrollment students, first-time college students in fall 2007 who had taken college courses while still in high school. These former dual enrollment students were included in the study cohort. Students were identified as former dual enrollment students if their enrollment or degree record prior to fall 2007 was before the student turned 18 years old.

Former dual enrollment students are almost exclusively traditional-age college students and their completion rates are generally higher than those of other students. Therefore, simply by virtue of including former dual enrollment students, the overall completion rates reported in Signature Report 6 was higher than those for the fall 2006 cohort shown in our first completions report, Signature Report 4. Consequently, the state-level results reported here should not be directly compared with the corresponding results reported for the 2006 cohort in Signature 4: State Supplement. To enable readers to compare the fall 2007 cohort results by state to the fall 2006 cohort results that were presented in Signature Report 4: State Supplement, this report provides selected results for the fall 2007 cohort excluding former dual enrollment students (Tables A, B, C)2. Further details regarding the study cohort are in the introduction and Appendices A and C of Completing College.

2 In a few cases, where new institutions were added or where institutions changed sectors, direct comparison may still not be possible.

HIGHLIGHTING STATE-LEVEL RESULTS

The body of this supplemental report presents student outcomes by the state where the students’ entering institution is located. 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 by state and institution type). Accordingly, we have included state-by-state results for 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 49 and 40 of the 50 states for four-year public and two-year public institutions, respectively, and 42 states plus the District of Columbia for four-year private nonprofit institutions. Table ii shows the states included in the tables presented for each institution type in this supplement to the national report.

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.

†† Results are not reported because the cohort includes both two-year and four-year enrollments.

††† Results are not reported due to the changes in data reporting over the study years.

To further guide readers regarding coverage and consequently the relative confidence with which the results should be interpreted, for each institution type, we grouped the states according to the following three levels of coverage:

  • Low coverage: States with coverage between 65 and 79 percent
  • Medium coverage: States with coverage between 80 and 89 percent
  • High Coverage: States with coverage of 90 percent or higher

* Due to the need to establish students’ first-time status, only institutions that have submitted enrollment data to the Clearinghouse dating back to June 1, 2003 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 (based on Fall 2007 data).

** Current coverage rates are caluculated 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. 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 #6.) Counts from the final data set (Fall 2007 First-Time Degree-Seeking Cohort) are further broken out by student enrollment status, age at first entry, and gender.
