Community College Completion/Graduation/Transfer Rate
Why it Matters: This rate represents the percentage of students who successfully completed a degree, earned a certificate or transferred to another institution within six years. Measuring success at the community-college level is complicated. These institutions have diverse missions and student bodies. Students have a wide range of career and academic goals, and more than half are enrolled part time. These factors require a different approach than the methods used for federal reporting requirements. The approach involves a broader definition of success and extends the tracking period to reflect the part-time enrollment of many students.
