Graduation & Transfer-out Rates

Community College of Denver is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation/completion and transfer-out rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education / Student Right to Know Act of 1965, as amended (Public Law 101-542). The rates reflect the graduation / completion and transfer-out status of students who began the cohort year as first-time, full-time degree or certificate seekers.

Graduation and transfer-out rates are based on three (3) years of attendance that equates to 150 percent of our longest program. These rates do not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, on official church missions, or in the foreign service of the federal government. Students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are also excluded.

Other information about percentage of degrees conferred by academic program, enrollment, and persistent data can be found in the Common Data Set report.
