The purpose of the Postsecondary Readiness Reports is to support state and local efforts to meet the goal that all Iowa students are prepared for success beyond high school.
This state website supports that goal by providing valuable information on how prepared Iowa high school graduates are for success in postsecondary education and community college based training. The Postsecondary Readiness Reports includes information on enrollment in colleges and universities, remedial course-taking rates, and postsecondary retention and completion rates for students who graduated from public high schools in Iowa. These rates are available statewide and by Iowa high school. They are also available by student demographic subgroups, such as minority students and students who are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch.
Data were last updated in June 2023 and some historical data changed. See the Technical Guide for details on the changes.
