Success Rates Summary

Picture of Graduate

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 bachelor’s degree from a university, an associate degree from a community college or transfer to a university from a community college are all considered successes. The report also contains a comprehensive success rate to showcase other successes such as earning a certificate, earning a bachelor’s degree at a community college or earning an associate degree at a university. For more information on how the success rates are calculated, please consult Understanding Michigan's Postsecondary Success Rates.
