Report Details Michigan Postsecondary Success Rates

The Center for Educational Performance and Information has just released the 2015 report on 
State of Michigan Postsecondary Success. CEPI began collecting student-level data starting with the 2009-10 enrollment class. The report, created in partnership with Michigan's' higher education community, works to identify more consistent and reliable measures to calculate the state rates. The rates represent part- and full-time enrollment; mobility between institutions; four-year degree attainment; and two-year degree attainment or transfer from a community college. Also included are rates for other academic accomplishments, including certificate completion. 
 
Michigan College Access Network is thrilled that our state has a source for such honest, informative data related to postsecondary attainment. In fact, Michigan is a national leader in calculating and reporting postsecondary success rates for its public institutions. MCAN applauds the Center for Educational Performance and Information for self-reporting this aggregate data. In order for our state to continue moving the needle as we progress toward Goal2025, we must always be willing to take a hard look at our strengths and weaknesses, so that we can better assist students in reaching for, and attaining, postsecondary education. 
 
For Local College Access Networks and other community stakeholders that have prioritized college enrollment and persistence, this data provides a helpful tool to inform local strategies. To learn more or to download the report, visit MI School Data
