Example 3:

Student C has attempted 45 credit over the course of their first 3 semesters of attendance. In the most recent semester the student enrolled in 12 credits and failed each of the four classes. Student C had previously earned a total of 33 credits in terms one and two. Their pace rate is 73% (33 credits earned ÷ 45 credits attempted = 73%). However, because the student enrolled in 12 credits in term three and earned zero credits, they are considered to be failing pace. Similarly, a term withdrawal will also result in a failure to meet guidelines because the student will have attempted 12 credits and earned none of them.


Example 4:

Student D has attempted a total of 190 credits while working towards their undergraduate degree. Their degree requires them to pass a total of 120 credits. 

190

Completion Rate
