This information sheet and the NCAA Division I Graduation Rates Institution Report have been prepared by the NCAA, based on data provided by the institution in compliance with NCAA Bylaw 184.108.40.206.1 (admissions and graduation-rate disclosure) and the federal Student Right-to-Know Act. Please note, the NCAA will make this report public. The Graduation Rates Institution Report gives graduation information about the most recent six-year graduating class of students and student-athletes who entered as freshmen. The graduation rate (percent) is based on a comparison of the number (N) of students who entered a college or university and the number of those who graduated within six years. For example, if 100 students entered and 60 graduated within six years, the graduation rate is 60 percent.
Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Reports
IPEDS is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). IPEDS gathers information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs.
IPEDS includes basic data needed to describe and analyze trends in postsecondary education in the United States, in terms of students enrolled, staff employed, dollars expended, financial aid dispersed, and degrees earned.
IPEDS also provides annual data feedback reports on WSU and selected peers:
