Student Right to Know

The Federal government, under the Student Right to Know Act, requires that all colleges and universities report the proportion of full-time students who complete programs within 150% of the normal time required for completion. For Elgin Community College, a community college with two-year programs, that time period is three years for associate degrees and proportionately less for certificates.

Enrollment, Graduation and Transfer

Completion statistics released by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) disclose how full-time students who entered Elgin Community College in Fall 2009 compared with other community college students in Illinois. Fifty-four percent of Elgin Community College students had completed, transferred, or were still enrolled three years later.

If these students were followed for four years rather than three years, the transfer and graduation rates would increase. Three years is a relatively short time frame for community college students, many of whom are working full-time or part-time: others may leave school temporarily for work or family reasons; or they may change their program of study; and some students may require developmental coursework upon admission. All of these factors tend to delay events like graduation or transfer.
