Transfer and Graduation Rates

Student Right to Know

Student Right to Know (SRTK) refers to a Federally-mandated public disclosure of a college's Completion Rate and Transfer Rate. The intent of SRTK is to provide to the consumer a statistic of comparable effectiveness that they can use in the determination of college choice. All colleges nationwide are effectively required to participate in the disclosure of rates.

SRTK is a "cohort" study; that is, a group of students who are first-time freshmen who are enrolled full-time and are degree-seeking as identified in a fall term and their outcomes are measured over a period of time.

Metrics on this page:

Completion – The individual student completed a degree or certificate from GHC within 150% of time.

Transfer-Out – The individual student left GHC and transferred to a different school, but did not complete a degree or certificate with GHC.

Retention – The individual student re-enrolled or completed their program by the following fall.

Employment – The individual student completed a degree or certificate at GHC, and was employed 3 quarters (9 months) after leaving the WA Community & Technical College system.

In compliance with the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, Grays Harbor College makes available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.
