UH Strategic Directions Measures

Definition:
Cohorts align with IPEDS definitions and the GRS and GRS 200 surveys.
First-time, full-time, freshmen student graduation and transfers-out from a 2-year to any institution is tracked at each campus where they registered as their home campus.
First-Time Freshman students are first-time classified students

  • 4-year campuses: BA seeking students and excludes DARCH and second BA seeking students
  • CC campuses: Includes Certificate and Associate degree-seeking students
Transfers-out from a 2-year to any institution are students who transfer to internal (UH) and external (other than UH) institutions.
Full-time attendance status is defined as undergraduate students taking 12 or more semester hours.
Cohorts that have not yet been reported to IPEDS are not yet adjusted for exclusions. Retention rates for these cohorts may differ from rates found on DAPIR or other sources.
Success Rates for UHCCs = Graduation Rate + Transfer Out to any institution rate.

Goals:
Using fiscal year 2013 as a baseline:
6-year graduation rate for 4- years through 2021:

  • UH Mānoa from 56.5% to 65%
  • UH Hilo from 36.4% to 50%
  • UH West Oʻahu from 25.0% to 40%
150% graduation + transfer out rate for 2-year: 50%
