KBOCC GRADUATION RATE, RETENTION RATE, TRANSFER -OUT RATE DIVERSITY, EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION

OVERALL GRADUATION RATE AND TRANSFER-OUT RATE

The overall graduation rate is also known as the “Student Right to Know” or IPEDS graduation rate. It tracks the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of “normal time” for completing the program in which they are enrolled. Some institutions also report a transfer-out-rate, which is the percentage of the full-time students who transferred to another institution. Note that not all students at the institution are tracked for these rates. Students who have already attended another post-secondary institution, or who began their studies on a part-time basis, are not tracked for this rate.

The demographic data provided below are based on students enrolled the academic year 2015-2016 as reported in the 2016 IPEDS Survey. Race/ethnicity identification is reported at the option of the student.
