Student Outcomes Data

Retention Rate

Retention rate is the percent of Hawkeye Community College’s first-time, full-time undergraduate students who continue at Hawkeye the next year. The information reported is based on IPEDs report on a Fall 2017 cohort.

Hawkeye Community College’s current first-time, full-time retention rate is 68%.

Transfer-Out Rate

Hawkeye Community College’s Transfer-Out rate based on first-time, full-time Fall 2015 is 18%.

Transfer-Out rate is defined as the total number of students who are known to have transferred out of the reporting institution within 150% of normal time to completion divided by the adjusted cohort.

An Adjusted Cohort is defined as the result of removing any allowable exclusions from a cohort (or subcohort). For the Fall Enrollment component, it is the cohort for calculating retention rate; for the Graduation Rates component, this is the cohort from which graduation and transfer-out rates are calculated; and for the Outcome Measures component, these are the four cohorts (full-time, first-time; part-time-first-time; full-time, non-first-time; and part-time, non-first-time) for which outcomes rates are calculated at 4, 6, and 8 years.

Financial Aid Data

Financial aid data for first-time, full-time undergraduate students for cohort year 2015.

Graduation Rate

The graduation rate reflects students who started classes in the Fall of 2015, completed their program of study, and applied for graduation within 150% of the suggested length of study.

For example, students who started a two-year program, completed the program in three years, and applied for graduation are calculated in the graduation rate.

The graduation rate does not count students who started a program in the Fall of 2015 but transferred their completed coursework to another college or university prior to graduating.
