Student Right to Know Outcome Data 

The Institutional Effectiveness Office recently completed the annual federal graduation rate report that requires us to follow a cohort of entering full time students and report on their status three years later. Sometimes these statistics are referred to as the “Student Right to Know” data, because of the requirement that we make them available to prospective and current students. Below is a summary of the results.

Total # in full time entering cohort (entered fall 2017): 903

Outcomes three years later (fall 2020):
• All graduates within three years of entry: 188 or 20.8% (prior year = 19.9%)
• Did not graduate, attending another college/university: 204 or 22.6% (prior year = 26.4%) (attendance verified by National Student Clearinghouse)
• Didn't graduate, didn't transfer, still enrolled at the College:108 or 12.0% (prior year = 16.7.8%)
• Total "positive" outcomes - graduated, transferred, still enrolled: 55.3% (prior year = 63.0%)
