The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center is the research arm of the National Student Clearinghouse. The Research Center works with higher education institutions, states, districts, high schools, and educational organizations to better inform practitioners and policymakers about student educational pathways. Through accurate longitudinal data outcomes reporting, the Research Center enables better educational policy decisions leading to improved student outcomes.
The Research Center regularly publishes research on student enrollment, movement, and other important student outcomes using student-level data provided exclusively to the National Student Clearinghouse by our nationwide network of postsecondary institutions. These reports are free, to benefit and better inform the educational community, policymakers, community leaders, and others.
Signature Reports provide national data that reveal patterns and valuable insights on students’ postsecondary, persistence, transfer and completions.
