In compliance with the federal Student Right-to-Know (SRTK) Act of 1900 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of Bakersfield College (BC) to publish its student completion and transfer rates. These rates are base don a limited cohort (or group) of students, which are tracked for a three-year period. The cohort is limited because it includes only students who entered BC in the fall term as first-time, full-time students seeking a degree, certificate or tranfser. Studetns included in the 2009 SRTK Cohort were tracked from Fall 2009 through Spring 2012 to determine their academic outcomes during the time period.
A student is included in the Completion Rate if they attained a certificate or degree or became "transfer prepared" within the three-year period. Transfer-prepared is defined as having completed 60 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better.
A student is included int he Transfer Rate if, within the three-year tracking period, they transferred to another postsecondary institution prior to receiving a certificate or degree or became "transfer-prepared."
The table below compares BC's Completion and Transfer Rates iwth the statewide community college average.
