Degree Completion

The completions report reflects the degree conferrals in a given fiscal year (July 1-June 30) and is the basis for our reporting to Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). As such, Purdue University degrees granted at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) are included in our totals and IUPUI campus views.

These views are a result of several state and federal initiatives and incentives during the past few years (e.g. Reaching Higher Achieving More, Complete College of America). UIRR has designed these data views with drill down capabilities to easily research the timeliness of Bachelor recipient degree completions. These views contain the most recent five years of data.

Traditional graduation rates are calculated by taking a cohort of incoming first-time in college students who are enrolled full-time and tracks them through 150% of the (NORMAL) time to determine successful outcomes (1.5 years for certificates, 3 years for associate degrees and 6 years for bachelor degrees). But, this process excludes certain enrollees (e.g. part-time, transfer and does not give credit for a student who graduates after the six-year time frame. IU time to degree (TTD) takes a different approach - the TTD captures all IU first-time bachelor's degree recipients in a particular year and looks back to see how long it took those students to graduate. A student who receives their bachelor's degree within four years is considered to have received their degree on-time.

15 to Finish

There are numerous initiatives now in place that encourage students to graduate within four years after beginning college (Reaching Higher, Achieving More; Complete College of America). UIRR developed these data views and visualizations in order to help inform senior leadership, data providers, and stakeholders about how successful IU students are at taking the necessary credit hours per semester to accomplish on-time completion. These views can also be used to identify target populations that are less successful so that interventions can be put into place to help these students graduate on-time and without accruing unnecessary delays and expenses.
