    Abstract: This is a revision to the 2004/09 Beginning Postsecondary 
Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09). This revision is to collect 
postsecondary transcripts for sample members. The BPS is conducted to 
continue the series of longitudinal collection efforts started in 1990 
with the National Postsecondary Students Aid Study to enhance knowledge 
concerning progress and persistence in postsecondary education for new 
entrants. The study will address issues such as progress, persistence, 
and completion of postsecondary education programs, entry into the 
workforce, the relationship between experiences during postsecondary 
education and various societal and personal outcomes, and returns to 
the individual and to society on the investment in postsecondary 
education.
