The effectiveness of BRTC’s education can be found on this page.
The average on-time completion rate for all first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students who entered the college between 2013 and 2015 is 26.3%. See below for breakdowns by declared major.
Methodology: Completion numbers are calculated based on 150% of “Normal time to completion” as defined in the IPEDS glossary, using the first-time entering, full-time, degree-seeking cohort, which is a strict, but standard, definition used to calculate on-time completion rates. Therefore, on-time completion is as follows for each degree:
- Associate Degree: 3 years
- Technical Certificate: 1.5 years
- Certificate of Proficiency: 0.5 years
Selective Allied Health programs are excluded from the following reports.
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2018
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2017
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2016
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2015
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2014
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2013
- BRTC Completion by Major Cohort 2012
Because of the strictness of the definition, there are some programs that will almost never make the cut as the normal time to completion is longer than traditional degree hours, such as PN, RN, and Respiratory Care. See the Selective Allied Health Programs completion report.
The average retention rate for all first-time entering students between 2015 and 2017 is 52.3%. See below for breakdowns by declared major.
Methodology: Retention is defined as first-time, degree-seeking (FTDS) students who enrolled in a Fall term and re-enrolled the following Fall term, plus those who graduated between terms, minus those who graduated and re-enrolled. Some programs are noticeably missing (RN, PN, and Respiratory Care) because students are not declared as those majors upon first entering.
