Graduation Rates (Student Right-to-know Act)
The graduation rate provided for right to know is reflective of the percentage of certificate- or degree-seeking, first-time, undergraduate students who complete their program of study within 150% of the normal time for completion. For a bachelor’s degree, 150% of the normal time for completion is typically six years. Please refer to the “Retention and Graduation Rate” section of College Navigator for King’s current graduation rate.
King University does not track transfer out numbers for right to know (i.e. the percentage of students leaving King to enroll at a different undergraduate institution). King University offers four-year baccalaureate degree programs and post-baccalaureate programs, which are typically not intended as a preparation for additional undergraduate education. Additional information on transfer out numbers can be found under the “Outcome Measures” section of the College Navigator.
Post-Graduation, First Destination Rates
(Employment and Graduate School Rates)
To measure the achievements of King’s graduates, Career Center staff track rates of employment and graduate school acceptance.
As of the 2018-19 graduating class – any alumna or alumnus with a degree conferred between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019 – Career Center staff collect data on all undergraduates. This tracking process includes the administration of surveys at the time of graduation as well as six months following graduation. Career Center staff also use publicly available data to obtain information. Additionally, faculty and staff provide such details to Career Center staff for the purpose of this tracking. Further, the Office of Institutional Research uses data from the National Student Clearinghouse to collect information on continuing education rates.
Below are the results of tracking rates of employment and graduate school acceptance:
