Q:  

How does one get access to the Baccalaureate and Beyond data (public-use)?

A:  

In the past, these data were disseminated via a CD-ROM that was a bundled version of the data and extraction software.

The new dissemination method is via the web through the DAS interface:

http://nces.ed.gov/dasol/index.asp

There is documentation and tutorials via their help system:

http://nces.ed.gov/dasol/help/index.asp

I have links to these under resources as the connection is fairly slow via NCES to open these tutorials. I also concatenated the User Guide into a single document.

DAS has a Tables Library. If you search on "beyond" it will bring up all sorts of tables based on B&B, which might prove helpful.

For additional assistance using the DAS, contact Aurora.DAmico@ed.gov or the contractor for the DAS system, das-support@mprinc.com.
