  • WCTC’s graduation rate (as defined by the U.S. Department of Education) is a four-year average rate of first-time, full-time degree-seeking students completing a program within 150% of expected time to degree. For example, students completing a two-year associate degree within three years are counted toward the graduation rate. For 2020-21, the Student Right to Know Graduation Rate (the average of the last four years’ graduation rates) is 42%.
  • WCTC's retention rate for first-time, full-time undergraduate students is 73%. This number represents the percent of first-time, full-time students starting in fall that either graduated within the first year and/or were re-enrolled for classes in the spring.
  • Some first-time full-time students opt to transfer to another institution prior to completing a degree. As of 2019-20, WCTC’s transfer-out rate was 11%.
