Note: Non-consecutive years appear adjacent in the trend line
because one or more years have been deselected.

Definitions: Data represent the percentage of high school students who were part of the high school freshman cohort and graduated during the winter, spring, or summer preceding the summer or fall they enrolled in higher education. For example, a student who was part of freshman cohort in the 2011-12 school year graduated during the winter of 2014, spring of 2015 or summer of 2015, and enrolled in any college in the summer or fall of 2015 is included. 
The college going rate is based on the in-state and out-of-state, two-year and four-year, public and private enrollment matches found within National Student Clearinghouse. TCAT enrollment matches use the THEC SIS. High school students were enrolled in any higher education institution (community college, university, in-state, out-of-state, public or private).
