Completion or Graduation Rates

Northeast Community College provides each student with valuable information about the success of students who enter each fall term as a first time, full time, degree-seeking student.

Graduation rate is determined by tracking a fall cohort of students who begin their studies as first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students. These students are then tracked for 150% of the normal completion time for their degree or diploma. A student who is seeking a one-year diploma would have one and a half years to complete the diploma requirements. A student who is seeking a two-year degree would have three years to complete the degree requirements.

The table below tracks the first-time, full-time students who entered Northeast Community College in the fall 2014 term.

  Fall 2014 Cohort Exclusions Graduates Graduation Rate Transfer Out Transfer Rate
Men 447 -0- 277 62% 34 8%
Women 338 -0- 156 46% 65 19%
Total 785 -0- 433 55% 99 13%

The table below presents the 150% graduation rate for four years and calculates the total for the fall cohorts of 2011-2014. New in 2016 (Fall 2013 cohort) was IPEDS collecting the HEA (as amended) required graduation rate for Pell recipients and recipients of a subsidized Stafford Loan who did not receive a Pell Grant.

Recipients of a Subsidized Stafford Loan that did not recieve a Pell Grant - 86 100 70 256
Completers - 45 58 37 140
Stafford Loan only Completers Rate - 52% 58% 53% 55%
Did not receive either a Pell Grant or Subsidized Stafford Loan - 253 257 316 826
Completers - 141 162 201 504
Did not receive either a Pell Grant or any Stafford Loan Completers Rate - 56% 63% 64% 61%

It is worth noting many of the students who are in the original cohort do not show as completers because they have transferred to a two or four year university or college. This was the goal of the student when they entered Northeast Community College. Though they are not considered a graduate, they did successfully complete their education goal at Northeast Community College.
