Goal: To be at or above the IPEDS Comparison Group.

 

Definition: Graduation and Transfer-Out rates are calculated as percentages and account for students who graduate or transfer out within three years of entering the College. The graduation rate cohort includes all full- time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students. Entering class includes all students coming to the institution for the first time. Graduation and transfer-out rates are the Student Right-to-Know rates. Only institutions with a mission to prepare students to transfer are required to report transfers out.

The IPEDS Comparison Group is an average of a selected group of community colleges similar in size to SKCTC.
