Student Right to Know

Student Right-To-Know (SRTK) refers to a federally mandated public disclosure of a college’s completion rate and transfer rate. The intent of SRTK is to provide to the consumer a statistic of comparable effectiveness to be used in the determination of college choice. All colleges nationwide are required to participate in these disclosures.

In compliance with the SRTK and Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, and the Campus Security Act of 1990, Elgin Community College makes available its completion/transfer rates and Campus Crime information to all current and prospective students.

Enrollment, Graduation and Transfer

Completion statistics released by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) disclose how full-time students who entered Elgin Community College in Fall 2015 compared with other community college students in Illinois. Seventy-three percent of Elgin Community College students had completed, transferred, or were still enrolled three years later.

If these students were followed for four years rather than three years, the transfer and graduation rates would increase. Three years is a relatively short time frame for community college students, many of whom are working full-time or part-time. Other students may leave school temporarily for work or family reasons, or they may change their program of study, and some students may require developmental coursework upon admission. All of these factors tend to delay events like graduation or transfer.
