Retention and Completion

The Graduation Rate is an annual component of IPEDS added in 1997 to help institutions satisfy the requirements of the Student Right-to-Know legislation. IPEDS requires institutions to submit data based on the number of students entering the institution as full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students in a particular year (cohort), by race/ethnicity and gender; the number completing their program within 150 percent of normal time to completion; and the number that transfer to other institutions if transfer is part of the institution's mission.

Please note that although the overwhelming majority of offerings at OSU-OKC are associates degrees and certificates, these data are reported as six year cohorts. This is due to the fact that IPEDS measures the institution as a four-year college because of the one bachelor's degree that is offered.

All rate data is based on the official first time, full time, degree seeking cohort for each fall term.

It should also be noted that in the last three years, the population of the first time, full-time students used in the IPEDS graduation rate calculation has averaged only 7.4% of the total student population at OSU-OKC.
