Student Right to Know

The Student Right to Know Act and Campus Security Act (Public Law 101-542) mandates that all institutions participating in Title IV or HEA programs disclose to current and prospective students graduation and transfer-out rates. In compliance with these mandates, Cape Cod Community College tracks all first-time, full-time, degree or certificate seeking (FTFTDS) students. Please note:

  • Graduation and transfer rates are based on status at 150% "time-to-credential" (i.e., 1.5 years for certificates, and three years for associate's degrees).
  • Graduation and transfer rates are mutually exclusive. For example if a student graduates and then transfers, they are only counted in the graduation rates.

Average rates for 2019–2020 reporting year for 2016 cohort of FTFTDS students are as follows:

Note: Disaggregated rates are disclosed only if the number of students in each group is sufficient to yield statistically reliable information and not reveal personally identifiable information about an individual student.

The fall-to-fall retention rate of first-time, full-time degree-seeking students who entered the college in fall 2018 is 49%.
