Graduation Rates

Overall Graduation Rate: 65%

2017 cohort

The Graduation Rate indicates the percentage of students who completed their degree within 150% of the expected duration. For instance, a standard bachelor’s program typically lasts four years. However, in this calculation, completing the degree within six years of starting college is included. Essentially, it gauges the number of students who successfully finish their degree within a reasonable timeframe.

  1. Who’s Included: This rate counts students who began their full-time studies at Kettering College six years ago aiming for a bachelor’s degree. In 2017, 35 new students started their journey towards getting a bachelor’s degree.
  2. Who’s Not Included: It doesn’t count students who transferred from another college, those who aren’t pursuing a bachelor’s degree, or those who attend college part-time.

This information is shared with the Federal Government as part of a survey called IPEDS Graduation Rates and it’s also shown on College Navigator.

Out of those 35 students who started in 2017, 21 (60%), finished their bachelor’s degrees by 2023.
