From High School to College Success
Every student deserves a K-12 education that prepares them for college, careers, and active citizenship. This includes a high school experience with excellent instruction and strong support. In this tool, you can see the most important measure of college readiness: whether high school graduates who enroll in college actually persist and ultimately earn a college degree or certificate. We include data for students who are estimated to have graduated from New York State high schools in 2012, 2013, or 2014, enrolled the following fall in a New York college or university, and participated in the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) — which provides financial aid to families generally earning up to $80,000 of Net Taxable Income per year for dependent undergraduate students.
