Where Students Go: Postsecondary Student Migration In and Out of New Jersey
New report reviews several aspects of student migration.
While one-third of New Jersey’s high school graduates who go to college full time leave the state to attend college, nearly 70% of those graduating from New Jersey’s colleges remain and work in the state.
A new report from the New Jersey Education to Earnings Data System (NJEEDS), Where Students Go: Postsecondary Student Migration In and Out of New Jersey, reviews several aspects of student migration, including secondary enrollment projections, net migration at the state level, capacity of higher education institutions, and the employment outcomes for those completing postsecondary education in New Jersey. This report uses data from the U.S. Department of Education, as well as NJEEDS.
