  • This institution does not admit full-time first-time degree/certificate-seeking students, therefore admission information was not reported.
  • This institution did not admit full-time first-time undergraduate-level students in the cohort year, therefore graduation rate information was not reported.
  • Alternative measures of student success are reported by degree-granting institutions to describe the outcomes of degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students who are not only first-time, full-time students, but also part-time attending and non-first-time (transfer-in) students. These measures provide the 6-year and 8-year award-completion rates after entering an institution. For students who did not earn any undergraduate award after 8-years of entry, the enrollment statuses are reported as either still enrolled at the institution, subsequently transferred out of the institution, or status unknown. Unlike the Graduation Rates data, all reporting institutions must report on their transfer outs regardless if the institution has a mission that provides substantial transfer preparation.
