What is Student Right-To-Know?
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 university must provide to students on graduation rates and transfer-out rates for full-time students seeking degrees at Metropolitan State University.
What is a graduation rate and what is a transfer-out rate?
Federal regulations specify how to calculate the graduation and transfer rates. The rates come from a study of Metropolitan State students who started at the university in the fall of 2010. The study includes all first-time students who enrolled full-time that fall and were seeking to earn a degree at the university. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduated from Metropolitan State University within six years. The transfer-out rate is the percentage of these students who did not graduate from Metropolitan State, but instead transferred to another college or university within six years.
What do I need to know about these rates?
These rates do not report on all students at Metropolitan State University. The 36 first-time, full-time students in the study were less than 1 percent of all undergraduate students enrolled at Metropolitan State in fall of 2010.
What are the graduation and transfer-out rates for Metropolitan State University students and how do they compare to rates for other universities?
Metropolitan State was 61 percent. The national average combined rate for similar universities was 71 percent.
Why don’t more Metropolitan State University students graduate or transfer in six years?
