Student Right-To-Know Act


Student Right-To-Know​


Student Right-To-Know refers to the Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-542), which requires colleges and universities participating in Federal financial aid programs to disclose information about completion and transfer rates.  The intent is to provide prospective students a statistic of comparable effectiveness that they can use to determine their college of choice.

The data is based on a cohort (group of students) who are: first-time freshmen, enrolled full-time and are degree-seeking.  These students are identified in a fall term and their outcomes are measured over a period of time.  The tracking period of the cohorts is three (3) years, at which time the Student Right-To-Know rates are calculated and made public.

Definitions:

  • Completion Rate: the total number of students in the cohort who earn either a degree, a certificate, or who successfully completed a two-year-equivalent transfer-preparatory program.
  • Transfer Rate: the total number of cohort non-completers who were identified as having enrolled in another institution.
