1 For a strong economy, the skills gap must be closed. 61% 36% 25% By 2020, jobs requiring a career certificate or college degree Skills gap Too few students make it through college.

Key to measuring time For too many students, the path through college ends with no degree and often lots of debt. time 2 years 4 years 150% time 3 years 6 years 200% time 4 years 8 years Data: IPEDS Survey; Retention Data from NCHEMS Information Center Note: This report presents data only from public colleges and universities. College America n 1

2 We re making great progress in providing access to more students. Total public college enrollment: 36,407 Attending Pursuing Degrees & Certificates 25,895 10,512 4-year colleges 20,726 15,681 2-year colleges Total State Population, White 65% College Enrollment White 65% College Graduation White 67% Hispanic 7% Hispanic 5% Hispanic 4% 24% Other races 4% 19% Other races 11% Now we must have more success from all students. 17% Other races 12% Population Data from US Census ACS PUMS; IPEDS Survey For states to compete, their students must earn more degrees and certificates. Overall Credentials Awarded Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Credentials Awarded 4,012 3, , Certificate Certificate And all credentials should provide clear pathways to higher success. Data: IPEDS Survey College America n 2

3 Graduation rates are very low, especially if you re poor, part time,, Hispanic, or older. Certificate-Seeking Students All White Hispanic On-time (1 year) Within 1 1 /2 years Within 2 years Within 1 year Within 1 1 /2 years Within 2 years 25 and Over Directly from HS (age 17 19) Pell Grant Recipients (at entry) Remedial In most states, very few students seeking certificates ever graduate. Degree- Seeking Students All White Hispanic On-time (2 years) Within 3 years Within 4 years Within 2 years Within 3 years Within 4 years 25 and Over Directly from HS (age 17 19) Pell Grant Recipients (at entry) Remedial 12.6% 13.0% 10.0% 4.0% degree graduation rates are abysmal across the country for Hispanic and students, they re tragic.

Data: NCHEMS Information Center; Rates by Race IPEDS Survey Given changing demographics, our country will not have enough skilled s to compete unless many more students from all backgrounds and walks of life graduate. = Data not readily available as part of the IPEDS Survey.

4 Retention rates drop from year to year. Many get discouraged and drop out Students in 2-year colleges who return to campus Start Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Start Year 2 Year 3 Year % 36.4% Students in 4-year colleges who return to campus 85.2% 50.0% after falling off track early. Students who earn expected first-year credits (24 credits) (12 credits) Staying enrolled is particularly tough for part-time students, who must often balance jobs and school. Remediation. Data: IPEDS State Profile 2-Year Colleges of freshmen require of those 4-Year Colleges of freshmen require of those and associated college-level courses in two years Graduate within 3 years (projected) Current approaches almost always guarantee failure. and associated college-level courses in two years Graduate within 6 years (projected) Data: = Data not readily available as part of the IPEDS Survey.

5 Precious time and money are lost when students don t graduate on schedule. Students are taking too much time Certificate Should take 1 year for full-time students Should take 2 years for full-time students Should take 4 years for full-time students and too many credits. Certificate Should take 30 credits Should take 60 credits Should take 120 credits More students must graduate on time. Data: = Data not readily available as part of the IPEDS Survey. College America n 5

6 More time isn t giving us enough success. For certificate and associate degree students, graduation rates are very low even when more time. Certificate 12.6% In 1 year In 1.5 years In 2 years In 2 years In 3 years In 4 years On-time graduation rates for bachelor s degree students are shockingly low. And adding time beyond six years produces little additional success. 59.9% In 4 years In 6 years In 8 years Data: NCHEMS Information Center Even modest progress provides little comfort when overall graduation rates are so low. = Data not readily available as part of the IPEDS Survey.
