IPEDS Graduation Rate

College of The Albemarle has chosen the IPEDS 150% Rate as its graduation metric. This overall graduation rate is also known as the “Student Right to Know” graduation rate. It tracks the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of “normal time” for completing the program in which they are enrolled.

Minimum targets were established by using the lowest graduation rate in the three data years leading up to the goal year. Goals were established by using the average graduation rate for the three data years leading up to the goal year and adding one percentage point.
