Methodology: Completion numbers are calculated based on 150% of "Normal time to completion" as defined in the IPEDS glossary, using the first-time entering, full-time, degree-seeking cohort, which is a strict, but standard, definition used to calculate on-time completion rates. Therefore, on-time completion is as follows for each degree:

  • Associate Degree:  3 years
  • Technical Certificate:  1.5 years
  • Certificate of Proficiency:  0.5 years

Selective Allied Health programs are excluded from the following reports.

Allied Health

Because of the strictness of the definition, some programs will almost never make the cut as the normal time to completion is longer than traditional degree hours, such as PN, RN, and Respiratory Care. See the Selective Allied Health Programs completion report.

A Graduate Survey is sent to each graduate by mail or email at the six-month and one-year mark post graduation. One-year graduation survey data is published below. A link to the survey is texted to graduates who do not respond to the initial survey. If there is no response to the initial survey or the text, the non-responsive graduates are called.  BRTC uses a Google Form for the survey. The survey is open for one month for graduates to complete.

Methodology: Retention is defined as first-time, degree-seeking (FTDS) students who enrolled in a Fall term and re-enrolled the following Fall term, plus those who graduated between terms, minus those who graduated and re-enrolled. Some programs are noticeably missing (RN, PN, and Respiratory Care) because students are not declared as those majors upon first entering.
