Graduation Rates 2011-12

Overview
Graduation Rates Overview
The Graduation Rate component of the IPEDS survey collects data on the cohort of first-time, full-time,

degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates and tracks them for 150% of the normal time of their program to see how
many complete. This information is collected as part of the Student-Right-to-Know Act.
Data Reporting Reminders

Once a student is in the cohort, they remain in the cohort, even if they switch to part-time or drop out. However,

adjustments can be made to the initial cohort for exclusions, which include the death of a student, permanent
disability, military deployment, or an official church mission.
Changes for 2011-12

A column has been added (column 51) to report the number of students still enrolled as of 200% of the normal time to
completion of their program. This will provide more information about the status of non-completers.

Screening questions
Does your institution post the Student-Right-to-Know student athlete graduation rates on a website?
No.


Yes. Please provide the URL.

Based on your institution's response to the predominant calendar system question (B3) on the Institutional
Characteristics Header survey from the IPEDS Fall 2011 Data Collection, your institution must report graduation
rates data using a

Fall Cohort

A fall cohort is used by institutions with standard academic terms (semester, trimester, quarter, 4-1-4). A full-
year cohort is used by institutions offering primarily occupational/vocational programs and operating on a
continuous basis.

Section II - Graduation Rate - Transfers/exclusions
•In the columns below, report the status of the BACHELOR'S DEGREE-SEEKING STUDENTS reported in the
subcohort in Col 10, who did not complete a program as of August 31, 2011.
•Report transfers-out who did not complete a program in Col 30. If the mission of your institution includes providing
substantial preparation for students to enroll in another eligible institution WITHOUT having completed their programs,
you must report transfer-out data in column 30. A school is required to report only on those students that the school
knows have transferred to another school. A school must document that the student actually transferred. If it is not part
of your mission, you may report transfer-out data if you wish.
•Report exclusions from the cohort in Col 45. The ONLY allowable categories for this column are:
students who died or became permanently disabled
students who left school to serve in the armed forces (or have been called up to active duty)
students who left school to serve with a foreign aid service of the Federal Government
students who left school to serve on an official church mission
•Col 52 [No longer enrolled] will be calculated for you. This includes students who have dropped out or who completed
in greater than 150% of normal time.
•If you do not have any values to enter in either columns 30, 45, or 51, you must enter at least one zero in a field on this

Summary
2011 IPEDS Graduation Rate Component Data Summary
IPEDS collects important information regarding your institution. All data reported in IPEDS
survey components become available in the IPEDS Data Center and appear as aggregated data
in various Department of Education reports. Additionally, some of the reported data appears
specifically for your institution through the College Navigator website and is included in your
institution’s Data Feedback Report (DFR). The purpose of this summary is to provide you an
opportunity to view some of the data that, when accepted through the IPEDS quality control
process, will appear on the College Navigator website and/or your DFR. College Navigator is
updated approximately three months after the data collection period closes and Data Feedback
Reports will be available through the ExPT and sent to your institution’s CEO in November 2012.
Please review your data for accuracy. If you have questions about the data displayed below
after reviewing the data reported on the survey screens, please contact the IPEDS Help Desk at:
1-877-225-2568 or ipedshelp@rti.org.
