OVERALL GRADUATION AND TRANSFER-OUT RATES FOR STUDENTS WHO BEGAN THEIR STUDIES IN FALL 2013

overall grad rate

Percentage of Full-time, First-Time Students Who Graduated or Transferred Out Within 150% of "Normal Time" to Completion for Their Program

The overall graduation rate tracks the progress of full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they completed their program within 150% of "normal time" (i.e., within six years for a bachelor's degree and within three years for a certificate). Students who have already attended another postsecondary institution, or who began their studies on a part-time basis, are not tracked for this rate. At SFCM, 79% of entering students were counted as "full-time, first-time" in Fall 2019.
