The graduation rate at the Johnstown Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, calculated according to the U.S. Department of Education guidelines, is 51%.
This Student Right-to-Know (SRTK) Graduation Rate is described 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; and in regards to baccalaureate-seeking freshmen, 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.
Hence, the current SRTK graduation rate for this campus of the University of Pittsburgh of 51% is based upon the following students:
Associate-seeking freshmen who had:
- 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
- entered in Fall Term 2012 and graduated by August 2015
Baccalaureate-seeking freshmen who had:
- 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
- entered in Fall Term 2012 and graduated by August 2018
Note: Two Graduation Rate Calculation Methodologies - The Fall 2012 incoming class is one of the four years of incoming freshman classes included in the calculation of the SRTK six-year graduation rate. For this particular freshman class, the six-year graduation rate per the SRTK reporting guidelines, which specifies graduation from the campus initially enrolled, is 38%. In contrast to this restrictive SRTK graduation rate calculation is the more-inclusive graduation rate calculation, with this calculation reflecting not only those students who had graduated from this campus, but additionally those students who had transferred to, and then had earned their baccalaureate from, another University of Pittsburgh campus. This more-inclusive rate for this Fall 2012 freshman class is 59%.
