  • Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses.
  • Beginning students are those who are entering postsecondary education for the first time.
  • Title IV aid to students includes grant aid, work study aid, and loan aid. These include: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant (National SMART Grant), Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Subsidized Direct or FFEL Stafford Loan, and Unsubsidized Direct or FFEL Stafford Loan. For those Title IV recipients, net price is reported by income category and includes students who received federal aid even if none of that aid was provided in the form of grants. While Title IV status defines the cohort of student for which the data are reported, the definition of net price remains the same – total cost of attendance minus grant aid.

Overall Graduation Rate and Transfer-Out Rate

The overall graduation rate is also known as the "Student Right to Know" or IPEDS graduation rate. It tracks the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of "normal time" for completing the program in which they are enrolled.

Some institutions also report a transfer-out rate, which is the percentage of the full-time, first-time students who transferred to another institution.

Note that not all students at the institution are tracked for these rates. Students who have already attended another postsecondary institution, or who began their studies on a part-time basis, are not tracked for this rate. At this institution, 40 percent of entering students were counted as "full-time, first-time" in 2012.

  • For 2011, line a was changed from 4 to 1 because one was counted twice (under an aggravated assault). One was removed because it was classified incorrectly (BB Gun) not firearm, and one was moved to drugs because it was both a weapon and drug arrest. Since both should not be counted and the agency has discretion we are following FDLE UCR hierarchy guidelines in this category and counting them as drugs. For 2011, line b was changed from 31 to 33 because one was previously counted under weapons and moved into drugs to follow the FDLE hierarchy. The other was initially missed due to UCR counting a higher offense, but was not a Clery higher offense therefore this case is counted and is not being duplicated. For 2011, line c was changed from 0 to 1 because a crime was not property classified when the 2011 statistics were completed and was fixed.
