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 2016 is 19%.

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 2016.

Pell Grant Recipients 386
Subsidized Stafford loan recipients who did not receive a Pell Grant 125
Recipients of neither a Pell grant nor a Subsidized Stafford Loan 244

Graduation Rate

The graduation rate reflects students who started classes in the Fall of 2016, 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 2016 but transferred their completed coursework to another college or university prior to graduating.
