The Commission requests comments on the priorities as presented in the FY 2021 Budget Request.

OMB Control Number: 1850–0926. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 34,682. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 10,435. Abstract: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) conducts the Baccalaureate and Beyond (B&B) studies. The B&B studies of the education, work, financial, and personal experiences of individuals who have completed a bachelor’s degree at a given point in time are a series of longitudinal studies. Every 8 years, students are identified as bachelor’s degree recipients through the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS). B&B:16/20 is the second follow-up of a panel of baccalaureate degree recipients identified in the 2015– 16 NPSAS, and part of the fourth cohort (B&B:16) of the B&B series. NPSAS:16 is the base year for B&B:16 follow-up interviews in 2017, 2020, and 2026 (anticipated). B&B cohorts prior to B&B:16 were approved under OMB# 1850–0729. The B&B:16 cohort is submitted and reviewed under OMB# 1850–0926. The primary purposes of the B&B studies are to describe the postbaccalaureate paths of new college graduates, with a focus on their experiences in the labor market and post-baccalaureate education, and their education-related debt. B&B also focuses on the continuing education paths of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Mar 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduates, as well as the experiences of those who have begun careers in education of students through the 12th grade. Since graduating from college in 2014–15 for the field test, and 2015–16 for the fullscale study, members of this B&B:16 cohort will begin moving into and out of the workforce, enrolling in additional undergraduate and graduate education, forming families, and repaying undergraduate education-related debt. Documenting these choices and pathways, along with individual, institutional, and employment characteristics that may be related to those choices, provides critical information on the costs and benefits of a bachelor’s degree in today’s workforce. B&B studies include both traditional-age and non-traditional-age college graduates, whose education options and choices often diverge considerably, and allow study of the paths taken by these different graduates. B&B:16/20 panel maintenance activities were cleared in July 2019 and are currently scheduled to continue through February 2020. This request is for the full-scale study student interview data collection scheduled to take place from July 2020 through March 2021. Dated: March 2, 2020.
