Student Right to Know Act
The Student Right to Know Act requires an institution that participates in any student financial assistance program under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended) to disclose information about graduation rates to current and prospective students. Institutions that award athletically-related student aid are required to disclose data related to the institution’s student population and student-athlete graduation rates to prospective student-athletes, their parents, coaches, and guidance counselors.
In compliance with the Federal Student Right to Know and the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, East Central University is pleased to share with you the following information on the graduation rates of our cohorts of full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduates and student athletes that received athletic financial aid. The rates reflect the graduation/completion status of students who enrolled during the 2000-2005 school year and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed. During the fall semester of 2005, 561 first-time, full-time degree-seeking undergraduate students entered East Central University. After 6 years, (as of August 31, 2011), 34% of these students had graduated from our institution or completed their programs.
While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:
- All graduation rates are based upon 6 years of attendance which equates to 150% of the normal completion time of our longest program.
- We have elected not to report our transfer-out rate because our university's mission does not include providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in other institutions.
- These charts do not identify the reasons why our students withdrew; therefore, students who withdrew for personal or medical reasons are included.
- Graduation rates do not include students who left school:
- to serve in the armed forces
- on official church missions
- with a foreign aid service of the federal government
students who died or were totally disabled
- An asterisk (*) denotes any cohort/subcohort with five or fewer students. The university is not required to discose this information.
