Degrees

Why is this measure important?

Like graduation and completion rates, this measure captures the overall performance of institutions getting students to the finish line and completing their programs of study. The number of degrees awarded is closely related to enrollment. However, the number degrees awarded can be increased by more high school students transitioning to college and by university strategies to improve retention and time to degree. Improved performance on this measure contributes to increased educational attainment, a stronger workforce, and improved opportunity for Kentucky citizens.

What is the technical definition?

Yearly production calculated by counting total number of degrees conferred (which is a duplicated student headcount) from July 1st to June 30th.
