- How do college access, affordability, and completion vary by race, ethnicity, and income?
- How much do students borrow, and can they repay their loans?
- What are national completion rates for part-time and transfer students of color?
- How many non-completers from a particular college never re-enroll, and how many transfer to finish their degree at another institution?
- Which students go on to succeed in the workforce?
The recently introduced bipartisan, bicameral College Transparency Act (CTA) would allow the creation of a secure, privacy-protected postsecondary data system that would help students and families, policymakers, institutions, and employers make informed choices by providing better information about college access, success, costs, and outcomes in a transparent, user-friendly way.
