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 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.

At this institution, 42 percent of entering students were counted as “full-time” as reported in 2015.

Overall graduation rate is 6%, overall transfer-out rate is 18%, as reported in 2015.
