Graduation Rate

FALL 2010 Cohort Published for July 1st, 2017

The Fall 2010 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 2010 first time starts who were registered for Fall 2010 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 (associate)/six years (bachelor’s) to be included. Therefore, the Fall 2010 cohort had until June 2013 to graduate associate/June 2016 to graduate bachelor’s.

During this time period some students graduated from both an associate and a bachelor’s program. These students are to be reported only once, as a bachelor graduate.
