2023-2024 EGCC Catalog and Student Handbook

Student Right To Know


The Student Right-To-Know Act amends the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) to require all institutions of higher education participating in any program under HEA title IV (Student Assistance) to disclose the completion or graduation rate of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time students entering those institutions. Sets forth formulas for determining such rates. Allows institutions to exclude from such rates students who leave school to serve in the armed services, on official church missions, or with a recognized Federal foreign aid service.

Eastern Gateway Community College is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution’s graduation/completion rates and transfer rates. The graduation/completion rates reflect the status for the most recent cohort of full-time, first-time students who have had an opportunity to graduate within 150% or normal completion time. Additional information may be obtained from the National Center for Educational Statistics’ website at http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/ or directly from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System at https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/use-the-data.
