Graduation Rates 2014-15

Overview
Graduation Rates Overview
Welcome to the IPEDS Graduation Rates (GR) survey component. The GR component collects data on the cohort of
full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students and tracks their completion status at 150% of the
normal time to complete all requirements of their program of study. This information is collected to assist institutions in
complying with the requirements of the Student Right-to-Know Act.
Data Reporting Reminders

Once a student is in the cohort, they remain in the cohort, even if their status changes to part-time or they drop out or
transfer out of the institution. However, adjustments can be made to the cohort for allowable exclusions, which include
the death of a student, permanent disability, military deployment, or service on an official church mission or with a
foreign aid service of the Federal government.

Section I - Graduation Rates - Establishing cohorts
Based on your institution's response to the predominant calendar system question (B3) on the Institutional
Characteristics Header survey component from the IPEDS Fall 2014 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.
Establishing cohorts
NOTE: Reporting using the new race/ethnicity categories is now mandatory. On this screen you will need to revise your
preloaded 2008 cohort of full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students to the new race/ethnicity
categories (if applicable). For information and assistance with this, please visit the IPEDS Race/Ethnicity Information
Center.

Transfers/exclusions
•In the columns below, report the status of those students in the BACHELOR'S OR EQUIVALENT DEGREE-SEEKING
SUBCOHORT listed in Column 10 who did not complete a program within 150% of normal time to completion.
•Report transfers-out who did not complete a program in Column 30. If the mission of your institution includes providing
substantial preparation for students to enroll in another eligible institution WITHOUT having completed a program, 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 eligible institution. 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 eligible exclusions from the subcohort in Column 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
•Column 52 [No longer enrolled] will be calculated for you. This includes students who have dropped out as well as
those who completed in greater than 150% of normal time.
•If you do not have any values to report in either Column 30, 45, or 51, you must enter at least one zero in a field on this
screen to continue.
