FALL 2008 Cohort Published for July 1st, 2015

The Fall 2008 cohort only includes first time, degree seeking, full-time students. Students enrolled in the Fall quarter who attended a postsecondary institution for the first time in the prior summer term are included (thus Summer 2008 first time starts who were registered for Fall 2008 are included in the cohort). Since only first time students may be included, students who attended prior college and students in Professional Designation programs may not be included in the cohort.

Students are allowed 150% of the normal time necessary to complete all requirements for a degree. Since the normal time for an associate degree is two years, students must graduate within three years to be included. Therefore, the Fall 2008 cohort had until June 2011 to graduate.

Graduation rates shown below are calculated using IPEDS formulas.

The overall completion rate for the AA degree first time, full time cohort is as follows:
