Student Achievement Statistics listed below and are available for Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College through the 2018 Higher Education Report card, found at 

Student Success

The student success rate is used to evaluate the success of all students who seek a certificate or degree. The success rate is calculated by following a cohort of first-time freshman, both full- and part-time, for six years. Students are measured as being successful if they achieved one of the following benchmarks: certificate, associate’s degree, or transfer to a four-year institution without earning a certificate or associate’s degree. This measure is more appropriate for tracking students in two-year institutions because it accounts for the high percentage of students who enroll part-time. It also provides students with intermittent enrollment patterns as a result of work and family obligations, or who need extra time to complete developmental education, enough time to achieve a successful outcome.

Retention Rate

This indicator provides the proportion of all first-time freshmen who are enrolled the following year at any West Virginia public college or university.  Data capabilities at this point do not allow tracking of students who transfer to private or out-of-state public institutions.  Students are more likely to drop out during their first year of college than at any other time.  The ability to provide support that will assist with retention during the first year will increase the likelihood of higher graduation rates.  Both degree and certificate seeking students were included.  This first year retention is an important milestone on the way to completion of a degree or certificate.
