Student Right To Know (Completion Rates)
In compliance with the Student Right-To-Know (SRTK) Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), Golden West 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 Golden West College in the fall term as first-time, full-time students seeking a degree, certificate or transfer.
Students included in the 2013 SRTK Cohort were tracked from Fall 2013 through Spring 2016 to determine their academic outcomes during the time period.
Golden West College Completion and Transfer Rates
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”.
