As defined by federal Student-Right-To-Know (SRTK) legislation, Spartanburg Community College’s graduation rate for the 2018 cohort year is 26%, and transfer-out rate for 2018 cohort year is 9%. It is important to note that the SRTK is a “cohort” study. It identifies the students who are first-time, full-time, and degree-seeking in the fall semester of the cohort year. The graduation rate is the percentage of students in the cohort who graduate within 150% of the expected time to graduation (typically within three years for a two-year program). While SRTK has merit in that it provides a standardized measure of effectiveness, it is limited in that the cohort is small when compared to the typical community college or technical college population.

The 4-year Average Student-Right-To-Know Completion or Graduation Rate Calculation for Spartanburg Community College is 23%.

The 4-year Average Student-Right-To-Know Transfer-out Rate is 12%.
