Statistics, Reports & Presentations

Bridge Idaho exists because far too many students are not being provided the opportunity and support to be successful in higher education.  The numbers are staggering, for our nation, the state and communities we serve:

  • 46th:The State of Idaho’s national ranking for the 6-year graduation rate of its college students—only 40.3% of all students enrolled in Idaho’s institutions will graduate; only 34.1% of its low-income students will graduate; only 31% of its Hispanic students will graduate, and; only 21% of its Native American students will graduate.

  • 47th:The State of Idaho’s national ranking for the percent of high school graduates who go on to college.

  • 48th:The State of Idaho’s national ranking for the percent of 18 to 24 year-olds enrolled in college.

  • 49th:The State of Idaho’s national ranking for “wealth-neutrality”, meaning that in Idaho, schools with less local funding and higher need receive the least support.

  • 50th:The State of Idaho’s national ranking for expenditures per student.

  • 51st:The State of Idaho’s national ranking (including the District of Columbia) for the retention of its college students from freshman to sophomore year.

The following report, from the Idaho legislature, is entitled Reducing Barriers to Postsecondary Education and highlights measures that Upward Bound programs have undertaken to address issues Idaho’s students are facing
