Student Right-to-Know Graduation Rate Disclosure

The Student Right to Know (SRTK) Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires all institutions eligible for Title IV funding to disclose graduation rates of degree- or certificate-seeking students to all students and prospective students. The population against which graduation rates are calculated includes only full-time, first-time in any college, undergraduate students who enroll at Northcentral between August 1st and October 31st and who graduate within 150% of the normal time to completion, or 6 years.

The most recent graduation rates reported to the Department of Education's Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) are based on full-time, first-time freshman entering the university in the Fall of 2007 who graduated by the Fall of 2013.

For this time frame, Northcentral University's SRTK graduation rate was considered "not applicable," since all undergraduates entering the university in the Fall of 2007 were either part-time or transfer students and, as a result, do not meet the first-time requirement of the definition and are not included in the SRTK graduation rate calculation.

Another measure of the productivity of a university's degree programs is completions. Below are Northcentral's completions for the past five years:

Award 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
Bachelor 94 100 58 76 32
Master 397 409 377 701 331
Certificate 42 37 23 24 25
Doctoral 151 198 179 263 166
GRAND TOTAL 684 744 637 1064 554

To ensure that current and prospective students have access to accurate information about relevant Northcentral University student achievement outcomes, Northcentral University discloses information about completion rates, retention rates, and dissertation quality on the university’s webpage.
