Student Right to Know Disclosure: Transfer and Graduation Rates

The Student Right to Know Act and Campus Security Act (Public Law 101-542) mandates that all institutions participating in Title IV or HEA programs disclose to current and prospective students four-year average graduation and transfer-out rates. In compliance with these mandates, Cape Cod Community College tracks all first-time, full-time, degree or certificate seeking (FTFTDS) students. Please note:

  • Graduation and transfer rates are based on status at 150% "time-to-credential" (i.e., 1.5 years for certificates, and three years for associate's degrees).
  • Graduation and transfer rates are mutually exclusive. For example if a student graduates and then transfers, they are only counted in the graduation rates.

Average rates for 2017–2018 reporting year for 2014 cohort of FTFTDS students are as follows:
