Student Right-To-Know

In compliance with the Student Right-To-Know (SRTK) Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), Coastline Community College makes available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.

These rates are based on a limited cohort (or group) of students which are tracked for a three-year period. The cohort is limited because it includes only students who entered Coastline Community College in the fall term as first-time, full-time students seeking a degree, certificate or transfer.

Students included in the 2011 SRTK Cohort were tracked from fall 2011 through spring 2014 to determine their academic outcomes during the time period.

Completion Rate: A student is included in the Completion Rate if they attained a certificate or degree or became "transfer prepared" within the three-year period. Transfer-prepared is defined as having completed 60 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better.

Transfer Rate: A student is included in the Transfer Rate if, within the three-year tracking period, they transferred to another postsecondary institution prior to receiving a certificate or degree or becoming "transfer-prepared".

The table below compares Coastline Community College's Completion and Transfer Rates to the statewide community college average.

Completion and Transfer Rates

SRTK Cohort Fall 2012 Fall 2013 Fall 2014
Completion Rate 26.19% 25.29% 19.14%
Transfer Rate 11.90% 12.94% 11.96%

These rates do not represent the completion and transfer rates of the entire student population at Coastline Community College nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period. For more information on SRTK methodology, interpretation, and rates at other community colleges, you can visit the California Community College Chancellor's Office website . Additionally, the IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey utilizes the same cohorts and reports out six-year tracking periods.

Disaggregate Information

The overall graduation rate is also known as the "Student Right to Know" or IPEDS graduation rate. It tracks the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of "normal time" for completing the program in which they are enrolled.
