Student Right-To-Know Graduation Rate Disclosure
University of Pittsburgh, Titusville Campus

The Titusville Campus of the University of Pittsburgh is a two-year campus that offers associate degree programs, an undergraduate core curriculum, pre-professional programs, and transfer programs for students pursuing baccalaureate degrees.

The information that follows is in keeping with the disclosure requirements of Student Right-to-Know (SRTK), specifically, this campus’ graduation rate and transfer-out rate.

Important Note

As is typical of the Titusville Campus, freshmen are considered degree-seeking, with only a portion of those freshman further identified as associate-seeking.  Given that the SRTK graduation rate calculation is derived from data collected via the U.S. Department of Education’s IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey, and as that Survey does not allow for reporting on associate-seeking freshmen only, each of the SRTK Graduation Rate and the SRTK Transfer-Out Rate is based upon all freshmen, hence, these rates do not adequately reflect graduation rates and transfer-out rates in the two-year programs offered at this campus

SRTK Graduation Rate

The graduation rate at the Titusville Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, calculated according to the U.S. Department of Education guidelines, is 14%. See “Important Note” above.

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

  • It is based upon students who entered as full-time, first-time freshmen and graduated with 150% of the length of their program.  For example, in regards to associate-seeking freshmen (as is applicable to this two-year campus), this 150% measure describes students graduating from a two-year program within three years;  and in regards to baccalaureate-seeking freshmen (though not applicable to students at this two-year campus), this 150% measure describes students graduating from a four-year program within six years.
  • It is an 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.

Accordingly, at the Titusville Campus, this SRTK graduation rate of 14% reflects the number of freshmen − again, all freshmen, and not just those who are associate-seeking − who entered in the fall terms of 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 with the 150% measure based on the numbers of these students graduating in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, respectively.

SRTK Transfer-Out Rate

The transfer-out rate at the Titusville Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, calculated according to the U.S. Department of Education guidelines, is 35%.   See “Important Note” above.

The U.S. Department of Education’s guidelines for the SRTK Transfer-Out Rate are as follows:

  • If the mission of your institution includes providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in another eligible institution, and your institution has information on students who transfer out, report the total number of students who transferred out of your institution (without a degree/award) within 150% of normal time to completion. Include students who transferred out of your institution and subsequently re-enrolled.
  • It is an average of the transfer-out rates of four freshman classes, with these being the most recent four classes for which the above 150% measure can be determined.

Accordingly, at the Titusville Campus, this SRTK transfer-out rate of 35% is based upon freshmen who entered in the fall terms of 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 with this 150% measure calculated in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, respectively.
