Report on post-graduation outcomes of recent graduates now available

Graduation rate report updated

2022 legislative agenda released
State Grant awards help more than 71,900 Minnesota students at both public and private institutions. The Council is asking policymakers to lower the share of costs that students are expected to cover, which would increase grants and make it more affordable for students to earn their degrees. The Council also has compiled new policy background sheets on state impact, access, affordability, debt and outcomes.
