Success Rates Summary

The Postsecondary Success Rates report shows the number of degree-seeking students who enter a Michigan postsecondary community college or public university and achieve a successful outcome. This report is available for Michigan’s 28 community colleges and 15 public universities along with metrics for the community college and public university sectors as a whole. CEPI worked to identify consistent and reliable measures to calculate the state rates with the Michigan Association of State Universities, the Michigan Community College Association, and participants from various public universities and community colleges.

The rates reported capture both part- and full-time enrollment for all degree-seeking students as well as mobility between institutions. Achievement of a certificate, an associate degree or a bachelor's degree is considered a success for both sectors. Community college success includes counting transfers to a university. The report also includes subgroup breakdown information by race/ethnicity, gender, and race/ethnicity by gender.
