Traditional graduation rates are calculated by taking a cohort of incoming first-time in college students who are enrolled full-time and tracks them through 150% of the (NORMAL) time to determine successful outcomes (1.5 years for certificates, 3 years for associate degrees and 6 years for bachelor degrees). But, this process excludes certain enrollees (e.g. part-time, transfer and does not give credit for a student who graduates after the six-year time frame. IU time to degree (TTD) takes a different approach - the TTD captures all IU first-time bachelor's degree recipients in a particular year and looks back to see how long it took those students to graduate. A student who receives their bachelor's degree within four years is considered to have received their degree on-time.
Bachelor Degree Recipient Profile
These views are a result of several state and federal initiatives and incentives during the past few years (e.g. Reaching Higher Achieving More, Complete College of America). UIRR has designed these data views with drill down capabilities to easily research the timeliness of Bachelor recipient degree completions. These views contain the most recent five years of data.
