Student Right-To-Know is a collection of information that a college must provide to students on graduation rates and transfer-out rates for full-time students seeking degrees at Northland.
Student Right-To-Know is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities to disclose certain information to students. This handout provides the information that a college must provide to students on graduation rates and transfer-out rates for full-time students seeking degrees at Northland Community and Technical College.
Federal regulations specify how to calculate the graduation and transfer rates. The rates come from a study of Northland students who started at the college in the fall of 2016. The study includes all first-time students who enrolled full-time that fall and were seeking to earn a degree, diploma or certificate at the college. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduated from Northland within three years. The transfer-out rate is the percentage of these students who did not graduate from Northland, but instead transferred to another college or university within three years.
These rates do not report on all students at Northland. The 391 first-time, full-time students in the study were about 11 percent of all students enrolled in fall of 2016.
