Student Right-to-Know Rates for Fall 2014 Cohort

In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of Foothill College to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. Beginning in Fall 2014, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a six year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed below. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Foothill College nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this six year period.

Completion Rate: 58.99%

Transfer Rate: 10.83%

Based on the cohort defined above, a Completer is a student who attained a certificate or degree or became “transfer prepared” during a six-year period, from Fall 2014 to Spring 2020. Students who have completed 60 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered “transfer prepared.” Students who transferred to another post-secondary institution, prior to attaining a degree, certificate, or becoming “transfer prepared” during a fourteen quarter period, from Spring 2015 to Spring 2020, are transfer students.
