The College and Beyond II (CBII) Enrollment and Award Study contains student-level National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) data provided by postsecondary systems. The data are intended to cover the time periods before and after students' undergraduate attendance dates at the CBII institutions, making them ideal for examining such phenomena as transfer behavior and post-baccalaureate educational attainment. There are three files for each system that provided data: an enrollment file (all terms of enrollment across all institutions that report to the NSC), an awards file (all degrees and other awards earned across all institutions that report to the NSC), and a derived file. The derived file was created by the CBII team from the enrollment and award data as a convenience for users. It includes summary student-level measures such as 'highest credential earned' and indicators for whether students ever earned specific types of awards or had specific types of enrollment patterns.The Enrollment and Awards data can be linked to other student-level data in the CBII series using the id_person variable.
