This document reports the graduation and retention rates at the University of Hawaii community colleges and compares the graduation and retention rates of students with other institutions. The three rates that are examined in this report are as follows: (1) retention/continuation rate; (2) graduation rate; and (3) success rate (defined as the sum of graduation and continuation rates). The data is gathered by tracking first time freshmen at a specific community college. The report concludes that the average three-year graduation rate is 14%. Also an average of 40% of students either graduate within three years or continue at the same campus after the third year. Furthermore, women have higher retention and graduation rate at most of the campuses. The average three-year success rate is 42% for women and 37% for men. Women also have higher success rates in all campuses than men. Lastly, Hispanics and Caucasians have the highest average graduation rates in all of Hawaii Community Colleges while Asians have the highest average continuation and success rates. The Hawaii CCs have an average continuation rate of 25%. Contains five figures, nine tables, and eight appendices. (MZ)
