Summary

Findings from the High School and Beyond (HS&B) longitudinal study supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) are presented. HS&B followed the activities of 1980 high school seniors and sophomores (who became 1982 seniors) through 1986. Enrollment of these students in postsecondary institutions was examined for each month of the academic years following high school graduation. The study looked at enrollment patterns of 1980 and 1982 graduates, enrollment patterns in four-year institutions, enrollment patterns in two-year institutions, enrollment in less-than-two-year institutions, enrollment of minority students, and enrollment of highly able students. Findings indicate the following: black high school graduates in 1982 were about 5% less likely to enroll in postsecondary education than black high school graduates in 1980; in the sixth academic year after high school graduation in 1980, about one-seventh of the students were enrolled in postsecondary institutions; beginning with the second academic year after high school graduation and continuing for subsequent academic years, the 1982 seniors were less likely to enroll in postsecondary education than 1980 seniors; and slightly less than one-half of 1980 and 1982 high school seniors enrolled in postsecondary institutions in the first academic year following graduation.
