Graduation and Persistence Rates: A Summary of Selected Data from the NCHEMS/University of Hawaii System Longitudinal Database Project. Special Report.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Institutional Research Office.
This report highlights graduation and persistence rates for degree-seeking undergraduate students at the University of Hawaii Community Colleges, as of January 1997. The report covers seven campuses: Hawaii, Honolulu, Kapiolani, Kauai, Leeward, Maui, and Windward. The data are from the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems/University of Hawaii System Longitudinal Database Project. The report includes full-time and part-time students, as well as first-time and transfer students. A glossary of key terms, highlights from the data tables and a summary of the overall findings are included. According to the persistence data, 53 percent of degree-seeking students who begin at one of the University of Hawaii Community Colleges will return for their second year. Students of Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino ancestry have the highest one-year persistence rates, while students of Caucasian and Hawaiian ancestry have the lowest. The data did not find a notable difference between the persistence patterns of men and women. The graduation section reports that close to 27% of degree-seeking students entering the UH community colleges can be expected to graduate within 6 years of entry; about 19 percent earn an associate degree over an average period of 3.3 years; and women maintain slightly higher graduate rates than men after 6 years. The document provided explanations of the data tables throughout the report. (TGO)
