Description/Definition: This measure looks at the most recent fiscal year graduates and the graduates from three fiscal years ago who earned transferrable degrees, to determine what percentage of those transferable degree grads actually transferred or continued their education at IVCC.
Methodology, Frequency and Data Source: Cohorts of transferrable degree graduates from one & four fiscal years ago at IVCC were sent to the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) in Oct., 2008. NSC results were analyzed to determine what percent of each cohort had transferred to another institution and what percent of each cohort had not transferred but returned to IVCC. Cohorts would be sent to NSC annually in October.
