First-Year Undergraduate Remedial Coursetaking: 1999-2000, 2003-04, and 2007-08

This Statistics in Brief uses data from the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) to examine the percentages of first-year undergraduate students enrolled in institutions of higher education (IHE) who reported taking remedial courses in the 1999–2000, 2003–04, and 2007–08 academic years, by institutional characteristics, such as institutional control (public or private), level (2-year or
4-year) and selectivity. For students who attended public institutions, this brief examines enrollment characteristics, such as undergraduate degree program and field of study; and student characteristics, such as sex, race/ethnicity, age, parents’ education, and dependency status.  More info
