Retention and Graduation

The Retention and Graduation Dashboards provide summary and detailed reports that track student progress in the traditional and last major approaches. More explanations/definitions about these two tracking approaches are available here.

In addition, learn about the Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, that requires institutions eligible for Title IV funding, to calculate completion or graduation rates of degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution, and to disclose these rates to current and prospective students. Visit our Student Right to Know page.

Average time-to-degree (TTD) is a length of time it takes a student from entering semester to graduation. It is a measure of the time lapse between matriculation to degree completion. Note: time-to-degree of 5.5 = five years and six months.

These dashboard provide headcounts and degrees awarded by term and can be obtained by selecting the appropriate data filter.
