Student Right-to-Know Act

Section 103 of the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 as amended by the Higher Education Technical Amendments of 1991 requires public disclosure of relevant graduation and transfer rate information for students enrolled in colleges and universities receiving federal financial assistance.

The Student Right-to-Know graduation rate is based on the performance of a cohort of first-time, full-time students (IPEDS cohort) over a three-year period, or a four-year average of those cohort graduation rates. Students who complete a program in 150% of the program length are included; for example, students who complete an associate degree in three years, or a one-year diploma in one and a half years.

While this data is somewhat useful for comparison, it represents only a very small part of Gateway’s student body, most of whom are part-time students who take longer to reach their goals. It also does not reflect all the students who successfully reach their personal educational goals without completing an entire diploma or degree program. Gateway values all forms of student success.

Gateway’s four-year average IPEDS graduation rate for 2010-13 is 31%.

Gateway’s graduation rates for 2013 IPEDS Cohort:

  • Overall 150% graduation rate: 31%
  • Male: 30%
  • Female: 34%
  • Black or African American: 44%
  • Hispanic/Latino: 29%
  • White: 34%
  • Other race/ethnicity: 30%
  • Pell recipients: 23%

Gateway does not report transfer rate information to IPEDS.
