National Student Clearinghouse
This third annual report on national college completion rates offers the first look at the six-year outcomes for students who began postsecondary education in fall 2008, the cohort that entered college during the Great Recession. It looks at the various pathways students took toward degree completion, as well as the completion rates through May 2014 for the different student types who followed each pathway. The report also provides discussion comparing the fall 2008 cohort's outcomes to those of the fall 2007 cohort (analyzed in our second annual completions report, Signature Report 6). The following are appended: (1) Methodological Notes; (2) Coverage Tables; and (3) Results Tables. [This report was produced in collaboration with the Project on Academic Success at Indiana University.]
