% HS Graduates (2011-2012) that Enrolled in College
A high school graduate is considered enrolled in college if the graduate meets the definition of Complete College Enrollment. Complete college enrollment is defined as a high school graduate who enrolls in college either full-time or part-time as degree-seeking or non-degree seeking at any point after high school graduation. College enrollment is reported for Complete enrollees once three years have lapsed since high school graduation. The totals reported for the Complete enrollment are impacted by the number of years that have passed since high school graduation. The totals reported for college enrollment should not be interpreted as declines in college enrollment as not all cohorts have been out of high school for the same number of years.
