Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act
Title I of the Act requires institutions to disclose completion and graduation rates (PDF) of full-time certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students to current and prospective students by July 1, 1993 and annually thereafter. A student is considered to have completed or graduated if he or she fulfills the program’s requirements within 150% of the normal time allotted for the program, that is six years for baccalaureate programs. Institutions may also augment these completion rates with information concerning students who left the institution prior to completion, and within 150% of the normal time allotted for completion, enrolled in a program at an eligible institution for which the prior program provided substantial preparation.
|Entering Year||Entering Total||Degree Recipients Within 4 Years||Degree Recipients Within 5 Years||Degree Recipients Within 6 Years|
|Fall 2007||677||289 (42.7%)||361 (53.3%)||388 (57.3%)|
|Fall 2008||658||302 (45.9%)||360 (54.7%)||379 (57.6%)|
|Fall 2009||576||234 (40.6%)||302 (52.4%)||309 (53.6%)|
|Fall 2010||612||263 (43.0%)||322 (52.6%)|
|Fall 2011||536||221 (41.2%)|
It is important to recognize that students withdraw from college for various reasons; academic, medical, personal, social and financial problems are among those reasons. Completion of degree requirements in more than four years, the normal time allotted for the baccalaureate degree, does not necessarily mean continuous enrollment during this interval but rather reflects the time span measured from the student's initial enrollment through degree completion, and where appropriate, includes interruptions in attendance.
Title II of the Act requires disclosure of campus security policy and campus crime statistics.
