The majority of high school graduates are either uncertain about their plans or don’t have any plans to further their education, according to a new study for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

That leaves just 46% of high school graduates who say they definitely plan on going to college or finishing their degree, the study reveals.

The study, conducted by Edge Research and HCM Strategists for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, surveyed 1,675 high school graduates ages 18-30 who have decided not to go to college or dropped out of their two-year or four-year programs.

Researchers found that even among students who are definitely planning to go to college, those who have already started their higher education journey are most likely to say they have definite plans to go back.
