What is Student Right-To-Know?
Student Right-To-Know is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities to disclose certain information to students. Federal regulations specify how to calculate the graduation and transfer rates. The rates come from a study of Central Lakes College students who started at the college in fall semester and includes all first-time students who enrolled full-time that fall and were seeking to earn a degree, diploma or certificate at the college. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduated from Central Lakes College within three years. The transfer-out rate is the percentage of these students who did not graduate from Central Lakes College, but instead transferred to another college or university within three years. The links below provide the information that a college must provide to students on graduation rates and transfer-out rates for full-time students seeking degrees at Central Lakes College. The date listed on each link is the term that the cohort of students in that study entered Central Lakes College.
