Student Right To Know

The Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires institutions eligible for Title IV funding, under the Higher Education Act of 1965, to collect, report, and disclose graduation rates for full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students.

The Higher Education Act of 1992 mandated that all U.S. institutions receiving Title IV funding complete the IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) Survey each year to the National Center for Education Statistics. The IPEDS graduation rate survey data is based on a 6-year graduation rate for each cohort of full-time, first-time degree seeking undergraduates.

To read more about the Student Right-to-Know Act, please visit the National Center for Education Statistics website at http://nces.ed.gov.
