(January 29, 2016) Knowing how many Michigan high school graduates go on to college and how they are continuing is valuable to both high school and postsecondary educators. MI School Data offers many useful reports on postsecondary progress of our state’s high school graduates.
Each year, we review our postsecondary reports to ensure that we are offering helpful and useful data to our users. The following reports are being updated on MI School Data with 2014-15 school year data. Many of the reports have also had changes made to the report itself or the accompanying data file.
- College Enrollment by High School shows, by high school, district, or ISD, the number and percent of graduates who enrolled in a college or university. (6-month data for 2015-16 also available.)
- 24 College Credits shows, by high school, how long it’s taking for graduates to earn 24 credits in college.
- College Remedial Coursework shows the number of Michigan public high school graduates who took at least one remedial course after enrolling in a Michigan college or university the year after graduating high school.
- College Undergraduate Enrollment provides a profile of undergraduate students enrolled at Michigan colleges and universities. (6-month data for 2015-16 also available.)
- College Progression by Graduating Class shows the number of Michigan public high school graduates who enrolled in a college or university, as well as undergraduate awards earned. The chart for this report expanded to allow for eight years of data.
- College Transfer shows the transfer patterns, demographics, and performance data for undergraduate students who transfer from one college or university to another. In addition to the load of the year-end data for 2014-15 and 6-month data for 2015-16, we provided a new percentage calculation that affected all years reported, including: 2011-12, 2-12-13, 2013-14. An additional change for the 2013-14 school year data is the correct classification of Northwestern Michigan College.
- Student Pathways shows student-level information on college enrollment, coursework, cumulative credit, program and award information, and grade point averages (GPAs), and can only be accessed with a secure login. Student Pathways has received a few changes:
- New fields have been added to the Basic Student Data File: military status, economically disadvantaged, and residency status.
- There is a new search functionality for both LEA and College/University including search by program CIP Code and by multiple UICs.(6-month data for 2015-16 is also available.)
