The graduation rate reports provide a one-page summary of statistics for each of the Texas public universities or the Texas public two-year colleges. Each report also includes an aggregate statewide analysis. All reports track a cohort of first-time students entering in the fall semester of the year identified who enrolled in at least 12 semester credit hours for at least their first semester. The students originally enrolled at either a public university or two-year college (CTC) and are tracked throughout Texas public higher education for six years. Student enrollment with independent institutions, public or independent health-related institutions, and career colleges are not included.
Baccalaureate Graduation Rate Reports track a student cohort (by ethnicity) for six years, beginning at either a public university or two-year college for the fall (year) specified. Reports for students originally enrolled in a public university indicate cohort members having completed a Baccalaureate (at the same or different institution from first enrolled), remained enrolled but no degree after the specified time, or who were no longer enrolled after the specified time. Two-year college reports are similar, reporting Baccalaureate recipients, transfers to senior institutions, associate degree graduates who did not transfer to a senior institution, and those students enrolled in a two-year institution but without a degree within the specified time.
