Enrolling in an institution of higher education (both two- and four-year) is a critical first step on the path to postsecondary success. By examining disaggregated data, interventions can be identified to help improve equitable enrollment in institutions of higher education.

About this data:

E3 Alliance relies primarily on data from the University of Texas Education Research Center (ERC). This data allows for a longitudinal understanding of postsecondary enrollment, persistence, and completion, based on where and when a student graduates from high school. This data pertains to graduates from within the state of Texas who enroll in Texas postsecondary institutions within one year of graduating from high school.

Following are items to note:

The year of the data represents the year of high school graduation. Measuring enrollment requires one year to elapse. There is also a delay in data availability due to state approval within the ERC and analysis time.

E3 Alliance produces the E3 Alliance Education Profile, the most comprehensive regional view of education trends and outcomes in Texas. The Profile offers a wide range of actionable and relevant data for the Central Texas region and connects the dots between student achievement and economic prosperity for our community. It includes data on the region’s demographic changes, early childhood education, K-12 student achievement, achievement gaps, absenteeism, high school graduation, college and career readiness, college enrollment, and student and economic outcomes and implications.
