College-Going Activity: National Student Clearinghouse

National Student Clearinghouse information by individual high school graduating classes are available below. Data for each year include Minnesota high school graduates attending U.S. postsecondary institutions for the eight years following high school graduation.

Ninety-six percent of postsecondary institutions in the United States and 98 percent of Minnesota postsecondary institutions participate in the National Student Clearinghouse.

These reports contain information on:

  • The number and percent of high school graduates who enroll in a postsecondary institution,
  • The level (2-year or 4-year) and type of institution (public or private) that students attend,
  • The number and percent of high school graduates enrolled at postsecondary institutions that persist,
  • The number and percent of high school graduates that complete an associates or bachelor's degree, and
  • A list of the postsecondary institutions graduates most frequently attend.

National Student Clearinghouse StudentTracker Frequently Asked Questions

Data available below are reports as received from the National Student Clearinghouse. OHE staff are working to improve the usability of this data through the creation of new user friendly reports and graphics. Caution should also be used in interpreting this data. Approximately 5 percent of students do not have a high school code associated with their enrollment record and therefore are not included in the reports below. This data originates with the Statewide Longitudinal Education Data System and then is matched with the National Student Clearinghouse data system using a probabilistic matching algorithm. Probabilistic matching uses a range of potential identifiers and weights to calculate the probability that two given records refer to the same individual. Please notify OHE about any possible errors in the data.

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education, in partnership with policymakers and the Legislature, has been focusing on improving data quality to ensure that record matching processes yield the best matches possible to maximize integrity of data and information provided by SLEDS while protecting individual student data privacy as directed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and Minnesota Government Data Practices Act.
