NOTE: Degree objective means having ever had the specified degree objective. Therefore, it is possible for a student who changed objectives to appear more than once in the table. For example, a student with an initial objective of a bachelor’s degree who changed his or her objective to an associate’s degree would appear under "changed degree objective" in the bachelor’s degree section of the table and would also appear in the associate’s degree section. Percentages may not add to 100.0 due to rounding.
