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.
