High School CTE Status of Postsecondary CTE Completers shows the count and percentage of how many students who have earned a CTE postsecondary award participated in high school CTE. You can see comparatively, postsecondary students who had not participated in CTE courses in High School (No High School CTE) to students who had participated as either Enrolled, Concentrator, or Completer (Any High School CTE).
The data help us understand the previous exposure to career and technical education that postsecondary CTE completers had in high school.

To calculate High School CTE Status of Postsecondary CTE Completers, the report uses one cohort of postsecondary CTE completers as the base population. These are the students who have earned a postsecondary award that was affiliated with a postsecondary CTE program. These awards are typically below the baccalaureate level.
Then, the postsecondary records are combined with the high school records to determine whether the postsecondary CTE completers have ever had any exposure to high school CTE.
Postsecondary CTE: These are programs that are both state approved and non-state approved programs that result in a degree below the bachelor’s degree that have a direct career relationship, and upon the completion the student has the qualifications, knowledge and skills necessary to directly enter the workforce within the chosen field of study. Also known as occupational programs.
High School CTE Status: Indicator of whether a high school student has participated in a state approved secondary CTE program. Values include No High School CTE, Enrolled, Concentrator and Completer.
Postsecondary CTE Completers: A cohort of students defined by the year in which they have earned a certificate or degree affiliated with a postsecondary CTE program.
No High School CTE: CTE status for a student who has not had any enrollment in any course sections of a state approved CTE program.
Enrolled: CTE status for a student who has completed course sections covering less than half the content standards of a state approved CTE program and therefore will not be identified as a Concentrator or Completer. Sometimes referred to as a “Participant.”
Concentrator: CTE status for a student who has completed courses that cover more than half the content standards in a state approved secondary CTE program with a grade of 2.0 or better.
Completer: CTE status for a student who has completed, with a grade of 2.0 or better, course sections covering all content standards of a state approved secondary CTE program and has taken the CTE technical skill assessment, if applicable.
Any High School CTE: Subtotal comprised of Enrolled, Concentrator or Completer of a state-approved high school CTE program.
The Center for Educational Performance and Information, National Student Clearinghouse, the Michigan Office of Career and Technical Education and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity - Workforce Development collected the data used to complete this report:
- Student Transcript and Academic Record Repository to locate enrollment in a Michigan public community college or university. For details on the data definitions and how the data are collected, refer to the STARR Data Collection Manual
- The NSC StudentTracker database to locate enrollment from out-of-state or non-STARR participating colleges or universities. For a list of all colleges and universities that CEPI has available in its postsecondary data system, refer to the Postsecondary Entity List.
- The Career and Technical Education Information System collects high school enrollment information for state approved CTE programs including expenditures, enrollment and follow-up. The data helps determine 61a(1) fund distribution and is required for federal Perkins reporting including Core Performance Indicators and the Consolidated Annual Report.
- The Program Inventory Database contains program information submitted by community colleges, including whether a program is occupational in nature.
- Unemployment insurance wage record data submitted by employers through Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency.
