College Transfers & Guided Pathways

ILDS Priority Area
A key priority for the Illinois Longitudinal Data System (ILDS) is to provide information on the outcomes of community college graduates who transfer to Illinois public universities.

The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) developed a pilot prototype for feedback reports with several community colleges and the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) using prior models, including reports produced through the Illinois Shared Enrollment and Graduation file, and the feedback reports to its primary feeder community colleges. ICCB worked with Northern Illinois University and DePaul University to develop prototype models for publication that were tested upon implementing IBHE’s Centralized Data System.
