Graduation, Retention, & Transfer Rates

Title I of the Act, known as the “Student Right-to-Know Act,” requires Austin Community College District (ACC) to disclose institution-wide graduation rates of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time students entering the institution.

As a result of the first baccalaureate degree implemented at ACC, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), ACC’s reporting status for the Integrated Postsecondary Data System of the National Center for Education Statistics changed from a public two-year institution to a public four-year institution, effective fall 2018. Based on this new status, ACC’s four-year average graduation rate is 13 percent, the transfer-out rate is 38 percent, and the retention rate is 0 percent. The retention rate uses the full-time, first-time-in-college, bachelor’s degree cohort. Since ACC currently requires students entering into a bachelor’s degree program to already have an associate degree, this number will be 0.
