Student Right to Know


In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990(Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of the Mendocino-Lake Community College district to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. Beginning in Fall 2014, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed in the table below.  
Based upon the cohort defined above, a Completer is a student who attained a certificate or degree or became 'transfer prepared' during a three-year period, from Fall 2014 to Spring 2017. 

Students who have completed 60 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered 'transfer-prepared'. 

​Students who transferred to another post-secondary institution, prior to attaining a degree, certificate, or becoming 'transfer-prepared' during a five-semester period, from Spring 2015 to Spring 2017, are transfer students.

The table below compares Mendocino College's Completion and Transfer Rates to the statewide community college average.

  2014 SRTK Cohort
  Mendocino College Statewide
Completion Rate 22.12% 30.36%
Transfer Rate 12.44% 9.48%

These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Mendocino College nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period.
