DOE Now Tracks Part-Time, Transfer StudentsNovember 10, 2017 | :
by Autumn A. Arnett
The Department of Education has finally started tracking graduation rates of part-time and transfer students.
The data also now gives outcomes specifically on Pell grant recipients, who weren’t tracked separately before.
First-time, full-time students make up only 47% of all students in higher ed, and one-third of students are receiving Pell grants, meaning federal data year over year was missing a huge contingent of the total population.
