Graduation Rates

The items in this section correspond to data elements collected by the IPEDS Web-based Data Collection System’s Graduation Rate Survey (GRS). For complete instructions and definitions of data elements, see the IPEDS GRS Forms and Instructions for the 2018-19 Survey.

In the following section for bachelor’s or equivalent programs, please disaggregate the Fall 2011 and Fall 2012 cohorts (formerly CDS B4-B11) into four groups:

  • Students who received a Federal Pell Grant*
  • Recipients of a subsidized Stafford Loan who did not receive a Pell Grant
  • Students who did not receive either a Pell Grant or a subsidized Stafford Loan
  • Total (all students, regardless of Pell Grant or subsidized loan status)


*Students who received both a Federal Pell Grant and a subsidized Stafford Loan should be reported in the "Recipients of a Federal Pell Grant" column.

For each graduation rate grid below, the numbers in the first three columns for Questions A-G should sum to the cohort total in the fourth column (formerly CDS B4-B11).

For Bachelor’s or Equivalent Programs

Please provide data for the Fall 2012 cohort if available. If Fall 2012 cohort data are not available, provide data for the Fall 2011 cohort.
