  • Student-Right-To-Know Graduation Rate Disclosure

    The graduation rate at the Bradford Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, calculated according to the U.S. Department of Education's Student Right-to-Know (SRTK) guidelines, is 48%..

    This U.S. Department of Education guidelines for the SRTK Graduation Rate are as follows: 

    • It is based upon students who entered as full-time, first-time freshmen and graduated within 150% of the length of their program. For example:
      • In regards to associate-seeking freshmen, this 150% measure describes students graduating from a two-year program within three years.
      • in regards to baccalaureate-seeking freshmen, this 150% measure describes students graduating from a four-year program within six years. 

    • It is the average of the graduation rates of four freshman classes, with these being the most recent four classes for which the above 150% measure can be determined.
    Specifically, in regards to the SRTK graduation rate for this campus of the University of Pittsburgh of 48% is based upon the following students: 

    Associate-seeking freshmen who had:

    • entered in Fall Term 2008 and graduated by August 2011
    • entered in Fall Term 2009 and graduated by August 2012
    • entered in Fall Term 2010 and graduated by August 2013
    • entered in Fall Term 2011 and graduated by August 2014

    Baccalaureate-seeking freshmen who had:

    • entered in Fall Term 2008 and graduated by August 2014
    • entered in Fall Term 2009 and graduated by August 2015
    • entered in Fall Term 2010 and graduated by August 2016
    • entered in Fall Term 2011 and graduated by August 2017

    Note: As described above, the graduation rates of four classes of entering freshmen are reflected in this SRTK graduation rate.  While the graduation rates reported for freshmen entering in Fall 2008, 2009, and 2010 reflect graduation from any University of Pittsburgh four-year campus, the graduation rates for freshmen entering in Fall 2011 reflect graduation from the Bradford campus only. The latter methodology for reporting graduation rates is now the standard in reporting these data and will be followed in reporting data respective to each subsequent freshman class to be included in the calculation of this SRTK rate.
