Student Right to Know

The Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires institutions eligible for Title IV funding, under the Higher Education Act of 1965, to collect, report, and disclose graduation rates for full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students.

The Higher Education Act of 1992 mandated that all U.S. institutions receiving Title IV funding complete the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Survey annually to the National Center for Education Statistics. The IPEDS graduation rate survey data is based on a 6-year graduation rate for each cohort of full-time, first-time degree-seeking undergraduates.

Please visit the National Center for Education Statistics website to read more about the Student Right-to-Know Act.

Federal guidelines (IPEDS) require enrollment reporting by campus. This will differ from total institutional enrollment (Dayton and Main Campus combined) reported to the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE).
