As a supplement to "Completing College: A National View of Student Attainment Rates -- Fall 2008 Cohort" (2014), 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: (1) By enrollment intensity across the six-year study period -- exclusively full time; (2) By age at first entry to college -- age 20 and younger, over age 20 through age 24, and over age 24; and (3) By gender -- women and men who started at each institution type. Two appendixes include: (1) Coverage; and (2) Unique Student Headcounts by State and Institution Type. [This report was produced in collaboration with the Project on Academic Success at Indiana University.
