Lower Columbia College provides this information pursuant to the federal Student Right to Know Act so that prospective students can make informed decisions about colleges they might wish to attend.

One of the required elements is Graduation Rate.

This and other data elements are available to the general public on the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences (IES) College Navigator.

This report includes a relatively small number of students who are new to college and enroll for the first time in Fall quarter for the purpose of earning a degree. The graduation rate accounts for students who finish within 150% of "normal" completion time, or three years (two years being "normal").

However, in reality, most Lower Columbia College students take longer to complete a degree.
