 Graduation Rates

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 first-time, full-time, degree/certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or certificate within 150% of "normal time" for the program. Normal time is typically three years for two year degree and one and one-half years for a one year certificate.
