This metric includes in the cohort all new (first-time and transfer students), full and part-time, degree and certificate seeking students, and nondegree students who earned at least twelve credits during their first two academic years. Students are counted with a successful outcome if they, within six years, earn a degree or certificate, transfer to a two or four-year school, attain at least 30 credits and/or are still enrolled.
