|Title:||First-Time Postsecondary Students in 2011–12: Three-Year Persistence and Attainment at Any Institution|
This set of Web Tables is the third in a series of four that together provide key information about first-time postsecondary students' characteristics and their 3-year retention, persistence, attainment, withdrawal, stopout, and transfer rates. This particular set of Web Tables highlights 3-year persistence and attainment rates at any institution attended for all 2011–12 first-time postsecondary students; for students beginning at institutions of different control (i.e., public, private nonprofit, and for-profit) and level (e.g., less-than-2-year, 2-year, 4-year); for students beginning in different degree programs; and for recent high school graduates starting in a bachelor's degree program. The tables indicate the percentage of 2011–12 first-time postsecondary students who attained a certificate, an associate's degree, or a bachelor's degree at any institution by spring 2014. They also show whether those who had not yet attained a credential were enrolled at a 4-year institution, enrolled at a less-than-4-year institution, or not enrolled in spring 2014.
