Student Achievement of Goals & Outcomes
Graduation, Retention, & Transfer Rates
Title I of the Act, known as the “Student Right-to-Know Act,” requires Austin Community College (ACC) District 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 9 percent, the transfer-out rate is 39 percent, and the retention rate is 0 percent. The retention rate uses the full-time, first-time-in-college, bachelor degree cohort. Since ACC currently requires students entering into a bachelor degree program to already have an associate’s degree, this number will be 0.
