The following report is based on two cohort groups, a Fall 1994 cohort of first-time full-time students and a Fall 1992 cohort of first-time part-time matriculated students. These cohorts were selected based on the conventional and SUNY guidelines, which specify full-time student retention be evaluated at three year intervals and part-time student retention be evaluated at five year intervals.



Sample



The full-time cohort consisted of 3052 students, 1540 (50%) female and 1512 (50%) male. Ethnically, 2596 (85%) were White non-Hispanic, 143 (5%) were Black non-Hispanic, 245 (8%) were Hispanic, 60 (2%) were Asian/Pacific Islander, and 8 (less than 1%) were Native American/Alaskan. The age of this cohort ranged from 16 to 80 years; 2416 (79%) were 19 or younger, 337 (11%) were 20-22 years old, 190 (6%) were 23-30 years old, and 109 (4%) were 31 or older. Developmental placement of students was 1013 (33%) as developmental, and 2039 (67%) as non-developmental; 1320 (43%) required no developmental coursework, 568 (19%) required one developmental course, 401 (13%) required two developmental courses, 311 (10%) required three, 219 (7%) required four, 172 (6%) required five, and 61 (2%) required six developmental courses. The Career Program accounted for 763 (25%) of the 3052 students, and Transfer Program accounted for another 2209 (72%) of the 3052 students. Among the three SCCC campuses, 1918 students (63%) were from (home campus) the Ammerman Campus, 368 (12%) were at the Eastern Campus, and 766 (25%) were at the Western Campus. Within the full-time cohort, as of Fall 1997, 696 (22.8%) of the students have graduated, 550 (18%) are still enrolled, and 1806 (59.2%) are not attending.



The part-time matriculated cohort consisted of 1094 students, 594 (54%) female and 500 (46%) male. Ethnically, 960 (87%) were White non-Hispanic, 56 (5%) were Black non-Hispanic, 64 (6%) were Hispanic, 11 (1%) were Asian/Pacific Islander, and 3 (less than 1%) were Native American/Alaskan. The age of this cohort ranged from 16 to 80 years; 441 (40%) were 19 or younger, 224 (21%) were 20-22 years old, 229 (21%) were 23-30 years old, and 200 (18%) were 31 or older. Developmental placement of students in this cohort was 416 (38%) as developmental, and 678 (62%) as non-developmental; 449 (41%) required no developmental coursework, 163 (15%) required one developmental course, 172 (16%) required two developmental courses, 113 (10%) required three, 100 (9%) required four, 70 (6%) required five, and 27 (3%) required six developmental courses. The Career Program accounted for 307 (28%) of the 1094 students, and the Transfer Program accounted for another 750 (69%) of the 1094 students. Among the three SCCC campuses, 656 students (60%) were from (home campus) the Ammerman Campus, 149 (14%) were at the Eastern Campus, and 289 (26%) were at the Western Campus. Within the part-time matriculated cohort 123 (11.2%) of the students have graduated, 90 (8.2%) are still enrolled, and 881 (80.6%) are not attending, as of Fall 1997 semester.


NOTE:  A recent survey of approximately 2,000 non-graduate, non-returning SCCC students indicates that approximately 30% transfer to another college or university prior to graduation.  It is important to be cognizant of this fact when reviewing and interpreting the data presented below.  For more information on the non-returning student survey please visit the Institutional Research homepage.


The goals of this study are to:

  1. Describe the graduation rates for various student groups (e.g. male/female, ethnicity, age, campus, placement, and program).
  2. Analyze the graduation rates to better understand group differences.
  3. Present graduation rates by campus and curriculum for further study.

An examination of graduation and persistence rates for first- time full-time students by gender revealed that a significantly higher proportion of female students than male students in the full-time cohort graduated (26.8% of females vs. 18.7% of males). At the same time, a higher proportion of male students were lost to attrition (63.4% of males vs. 55.1% of females). A similar proportion of both male and female students within the full-time cohort remain enrolled. See Table 1.

Graduation and persistence rates by ethnic group represented at SCCC were analyzed. Among students in the full-time cohort, significant differences in graduation rates were found across ethnic groups. White non-Hispanic students graduated at the highest rate (24.3%), with Asian/Pacific Islander students, Hispanic students, and Black non-Hispanic students following (16.7%, 16.3%, and 10.5% respectively). Significant differences in persistence rates were also found across ethnic groups. Correspondingly, attrition among Black non-Hispanic students was highest (74.1%) with Asian/Pacific Islander students, Hispanic students, and White non-Hispanic students following (66.7%, 62.4%, and 57.7% respectively). Hispanic students within the 1994 cohort have the highest rate of persistence (21.2%). There were too few American Indian/Alaskan students in each category to be included in the analysis. See Table 2.

An analysis of graduation and persistence rates across the three SCCC campuses shows significant differences in campus graduation rates among students in the first-time full-time cohort. The Ammerman Campus had the highest rate of graduation (24%) with the Eastern and Western Campuses rates following closely (22.3% and 20.1% respectively). Likewise, differences in attrition were found among the campuses. The Western Campus had the highest rate of attrition (65.1%), and the lowest rate of persistence (14.8%). Attrition rates for both the Ammerman and Eastern Campuses was significantly lower (57.1% and 57.6% respectively) than for the Western Campus. See Table 3.

An investigation of graduation and persistence rates by age category revealed significant differences within the full-time cohort. Students age 19 or below graduate in higher proportion (24.4%) than older students in the full-time cohort. Age related differences in attrition rates were also found. Interestingly, students age 20-22 years and 23-30 years dropped out in higher proportion (70.9% and 73.7% respectively) than students either younger or older. Correspondingly, both students age 19 or below and students 31 or above have higher rates of ongoing enrollment (19.3% and 17.4%) than students age 20-30 years. See Table 4.

Students classified developmental require remedial coursework in two or more basic skill areas.



An examination of graduation and persistence rates by developmental placement for first-time full-time students revealed that a significantly higher proportion of non-developmental students than developmental students graduated (28.0% of non-developmental vs. 12.4% of developmental). At the same time, a higher proportion of developmental students than non-developmental students were no longer attending (68.1% of developmental vs. 54.7% of non-developmental). A similar proportion of both groups remain enrolled (19.4% and 17.3%). See Table 5.

The number of developmental courses required of students in the full-time cohort was analyzed and found to be significantly related to graduation and persistence rates. Not surprisingly, students requiring no developmental courses graduated in the highest proportion (31%). Significant linear trends were shown (Mantel-Haenszel 2(1, N = 3052) = 122.23, p = .001). Graduation rates decreased linearly as a larger number of developmental courses were required. Attrition rates showed the reverse trend. A linear increase was seen as greater proportions of those students requiring a larger number of developmental courses were lost to attrition. See Table 6 and Figure 1.

An examination of graduation and persistence rates by gender revealed a significantly higher proportion of female students than male students in the part-time cohort graduated (14.3% of females vs. 7.6% of males). At the same time, no significant gender difference was found in either the proportion of students who were lost to attrition (85.4% of males vs. 76.4% of females) or the proportion of students who remain enrolled at SCCC (7% of males vs. 9.3% of females).

Graduation and persistence rates of the major ethnic groups represented at SCCC were analyzed. In contrast to the full-time cohort, among students in the part-time cohort, initial analysis found no significant differences in graduation or persistence rates across ethnic groups. Further analysis of graduation rates using a composite category of students who have not graduated for comparison with students who have graduated, revealed significant differences among ethnic groups (2(3, N = 1091) = 9.686, p < .05). Specifically, graduation rates among Black non-Hispanic students were lower than rates among students of the other ethnicities. There were too few American Indian/Alaskan students in each category to be included in the analyses. See Table 9.

An analysis of graduation and persistence rates across the three SCCC campuses showed no significant differences in graduation or persistence rates of students in the part-time cohort. Analysis using dichotomized graduate/non-graduate categories also failed to show significant differences in graduation rates of part-time students among the three campuses. See Table 10.

Investigation of the effect of age on graduation and persistence rates revealed no significant differences in graduation or persistence rates of students in the part-time cohort according to age. Further analysis of part-time students using dichotomized graduate/non-graduate categories also failed to show significant age related differences in graduation rates. See Table 11.

Students classified developmental require remedial coursework in two or more basic skill areas.



In an initial examination of graduation and persistence rates of students in the part-time cohort according to developmental placement, no significant differences were found in graduation or persistence rates of non-developmental and developmental students. To further examine graduation rate, students who have graduated were compared to students who have not graduated across developmental placement. This analysis showed significant differences in graduation rate between developmental and non-developmental part-time students (2(1, N = 1094) = 6.133, p < .05.). Specifically, a smaller proportion of part-time students in the developmental program graduate in comparison to the non-developmental students. See Table 12.

The number of developmental courses required of students in the part-time cohort was found to have no significant effect on graduation and persistence rates in overall analysis. In light of the strong pattern of graduation rates revealed in the full-time student cohort, further examination of graduation rates was undertaken in the part-time cohort. A second single category, students who have not graduated, was created by combining those students who have dropped out with those students who remain enrolled. A comparison of the graduation rate by the number of developmental courses required found significant differences between the developmental groups. Specifically, part-time students who are required to take six developmental courses graduate in lower proportions than part-time students required to take 0-5 developmental courses. Similar to the full-time cohort, a nearly significant linear trend (Mantel-Haenszel 2(1, N = 1094) = 2.437, p = .119) can be seen in the graduation rates of the part-time cohort with graduation rates decreasing as the number of developmental courses required increases. See Table 13.

Comparable to the finding with the full-time students, among the part-time students 28% (307, 29% of 1057 Program participants) enrolled in the Career Program, and 69% of the students in the part-time cohort (750, 71% of 1057 Program participants) enrolled in the Transfer Program. However, within the part-time cohort, no significant differences in graduation or persistence rates were found between the Career and Transfer students. See Table 14.

The 1988 cohort consists of 1478 first-time full-time and part-time students who graduated between 1989 and 1997 (1124 full-time, 354 part-time).



An analysis was conducted on students who entered SCCC for the first time in the Fall 88 semester either full-time or part-time. Among the students 1478 graduated as of the Fall 97 semester (1124 full-time and 354 part-time). Of the students who graduated in those nine years, 562 (59.7%) graduated within three years. The proportion of graduates increased steadily from the fourth to ninth years (79.1% graduated within four years, 86.6% within five years, and 91.3% within six years).



Full-time students represent 76% (1124 of the 1478) of the students in this cohort who graduated within nine years. Full-time students ideally graduate in two years, and 26.5% (294) of the full-time students in this cohort who graduated, did so within this period. At the end of three years a majority of the full-time students (69%) had graduated, by the end of four years 86.3% had graduated, and after six years 94.5% had graduated.



Part-time students represent the additional 24% (354 of the 1478) of graduated students in this Fall 98 cohort. Part-time students would be expected to, and did, show a similar but delayed pattern of results. A majority of the part-time students graduated within four years (56.5%). At the end of five years 70.1% had graduated, and after six years 81.7% had graduated. The proportion of graduated part-time students from this cohort increased a little more dramatically than that of the full-time students over years seven, eight, and nine (88.8% in seven years, 95.3% in eight years, and the final 4.7% of part-time students in this cohort graduated in the ninth year).

An analysis was conducted on Fall to Spring semester to semester persistence over 10 years. The average persistence rate from the Fall to the Spring semester was 82.3%. The group which persisted was on average 53.5% female and 46.5% male.



Persistence rates among females ranged from 83.2% to 84.9%, and averaged 84.2% (SD=.76). Male persistence rates ranged from 78% to 83%, and averaged 80.3% (SD=1.66). In general females showed greater persistence than males, with less variation over time than males.

Fall to Fall annual persistence was also examined over 10 years. The average persistence rate from the year to year was 65.2%. The group which persisted was on average 53.5% female and 46.5% male.



Persistence rates among females ranged from 65.7% to 69.6%, and averaged 68% (SD=1.55). Male persistence rates ranged from 58.7% to 66.7%, and averaged 62.1% (SD=2.49). As was seen with semester to semester persistence, fall to fall persistence among females was higher than among males, with less variation over time than males. Variation in both male and female persistence was greater in year to year persistence than in semester to semester persistence.

An examination of the cumulative percent of students who graduated at various intervals over a ten year period was conducted for the first-time full-time students entering SCCC from 1986 through 1994. Across the ten years since 1986, an average 9.5% of students graduated in two years. After a third year, the cumulative average increased from 9.5% to 25.7%, after 4 years the average cumulative graduation rate increased to 31.7%, and to 39.5% at the end of nine years.



The students in the entering class of 1986 had the highest two year graduation rate (12.4%). The entering class of 1993 had the lowest graduation rate (7.7%). The highest three year graduation rate (28.7%) belonged to the entering class of 1987, and the lowest three year graduation rate (21.5%) belonged to the entering class of 1993. The entering class of 1988 shows the highest cumulative rate of graduation across the remaining six years.



Although it is beyond the scope of this report and discussion, information about graduation and persistence rates in relation to specific curriculum is available in additional tables at the end of the report.
