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 a 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 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 in the academic year 2022-2023 as reported in the 2022 IPEDS Survey. Race/ethnicity identification is reported at the option of the student.
Retention rates are measured from the fall of first enrollment to the following fall. Academic reporting institutions report retention data for the Fall 2021 cohort of students who are still enrolled as of the institution’s official fall reporting date or as of October, 2022.
