Gates Foundation Study Finds Early College Impacts, Enrollment, and Attainment Results  

      

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation commissioned a study of 2,458 students with data collected through summer 2013 and follow up data of oldest students from the National Student Clearinghouse to explore whether Early College students have better outcomes than non-Early College students and whether those outcomes vary by demographics.[1] Outcomes measured include likelihood to enroll in college and to earn a college degree.

 

As has been seen with other research, Early College students in this study were more likely to enroll in college and were more likely to earn a college degree than non-Early College students.[1,2]
