Student Right-To-Know is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities to disclose certain information to students. This handout provides the information that a university must provide to students on graduation rates and transfer-out rates for full-time students seeking degrees at Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Federal regulations specify how to calculate the graduation and transfer rates. The rates come from a study of MSUM students who started at the university in the fall of 2009. The study includes all first-time students who enrolled full-time that fall and were seeking to earn a degree at the university. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduated from MSUM within six years. The transfer-out rate is the percentage of these students who did not graduate from MSUM, but instead transferred to another college or university within six years.
These rates do not report on all students at Minnesota State University Moorhead. The 1,073 first-time, full-time students in the study were 16 percent of all undergraduate students enrolled in fall of 2011.
