Abstract: The Baccalaureate and beyond longitudinal study (B&B:93) tracks the experiences of a cohort of recent college graduates, those who received the baccalaureate degree during the 1992-1993 academic year and were first interviewed as part of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS). B&B will follow this group into graduate/first professional school, and into the workforce to provide information concerning experiences in the areas of academic enrollments, degree completions, employment, public service, and other adult decisions. B&B 93 attempts to provide data to assess the outcomes of postsecondary education, graduate and professional program access, and rates of return on investment in education. The first B&B follow-up includes undergraduate transcripts of the respondents.
