D. Student Outcomes

1.  Graduation Rates

 

     a. Two-Year Graduation Rate

 

This is an additional category requested by the NJ Commission on Higher Education. Previously, community colleges have been required to report graduation rates within 150% of the catalog time; in other words, a three- year graduation rate.  According to the data reported for the 2007 cohort, there were 548* entering first-time, full-time, degree-seeking freshmen.  After two years, 91 of these students or 16.6 percent completed their programs and graduated with a degree or certificate.  In addition, after three years, a total of 30.2 percent completed degrees or certificates.  

      According to the Student Right to Know data for the Fall 2007 entering cohort, another 124 students were still enrolled at the college as of Fall 2010 and 166 or 26.2 percent left in good standing with a GPA of 2.00 or above.  The total number of students who graduated, transferred prior to graduation, remained enrolled, or left in good standing was 86.3 percent.

     

      b. Three-year Graduation and Transfer Rates by Race/Ethnicity

       

Three-year graduation and transfer rates include the number of entering first-time, full-time, degree-seeking freshmen who entered the college in the Fall of a specific year and three years later either received a degree or certificate or transferred to another institution prior to receiving a degree.
