The Student Right-to-Know Act requires schools to disclose graduation rates of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time, first-time undergraduate students. These are students who have not attended post-secondary education courses before and who are attending school on a full-time basis. University of the Potomac’s programs are currently focused on students attending on a full-time basis; however, in the past, University of the Potomac’s programs were primarily directed to students attending school on a part-time basis, most of whom had previously taken courses at another institution.
Therefore, the cohort of students who meet the definition of full-time, first-time undergraduate students is very small.
There were 14 students who started associate degree programs in the Fall of 2009. Of these students, 12 were “first-time and full-time” and 2 students graduated within the 150% completion time for a 17% graduation rate in this population.
There were 82 students in the Fall 2006 cohort. Of these students, 9 were “first-time, full-time” BA degree students. One of these students graduated in the 2012 academic year within the 150% completion time. 7 others withdrew from the institution and one has returned for a 11% graduation rate in this very small population.
