Each year, DACC reports a retention rate for both our first-time, full-time students and our first-time, part-time students. The retention rate represents the percentage of students who started in a fall semester and were still enrolled the following fall semester. Most of our other IPEDS cohort reporting is only based on the first-time, full-time (FTFT) cohort and does not include part-time students. DACC’s IPEDS cohort typically represents about half of our first-time students. Over the past 10 years, the cohort has represented between 44% and 56% of our first-time students with an average of 50%.

At the 150% mark (three years for a two-year associate degree), we report to IPEDS the number of students who: have completed a certificate or an associate degree (Graduation Rate), transferred to another school without completing a credential at DACC (Transfer Out Rate), or continued to be enrolled at DACC (Still Enrolled).  The rest of the cohort is considered to be Not Enrolled.
