Student Right to Know

The Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires institutions eligible for Title IV funding, under the Higher Education Act of 1965, to calculate completion or graduation rates of certificate/degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution, and to disclose these rates to current and prospective students. To read more about the Student Right-to-Know Act, please visit the National Center for Education Statistics website at http://nces.ed.gov.
 
In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know Act, each of the City Colleges of Chicago makes the most recent  completion and transfer-out rates available to all current and prospective students.
 
Beginning in Fall 2008, a cohort of all certificate/degree-seeking, first-time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed below.
 
Please keep in mind that these rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at each College nor do they account for degrees or certificates awarded after this three-year tracking period.

Student-Athlete Graduation Rates

In compliance with the Federal Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, City Colleges of Chicago provides the following information on the graduation rates of full-time, first-time degree seeking undergraduate and student-athletes that have received athletically related financial aid. This report contains graduation/completion rates of students receiving athletically-related student aid by gender and by sport for the most recent entering cohort of students in which data is available.   These data are not disaggregated by racial and ethnic subgroup or receipt of different categories of financial aid as the resulting number of students in these subgroups is insufficient to preserve confidentiality.

Graduation rates are based upon three years of attendance for advanced certificate and degree programs and two years of attendance for basic certificate programs (which equates to 150% of the normal completion time for each type of academic program).
