Data supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: Institutions report a persistence rate, not the numerator and denominator. As a result, the persistence rate for the TCCUs is calculated as a median.
 
Objective 3 of 4: Maintain or increase the graduation rate for students enrolled at TCCUs.
Indicator 3.1 of 1: Graduation rate: The graduation rate of students enrolled at TCCUs will increase.
 
Measure 3.1.1 of 2: The percentage of students enrolled at four-year TCCUs graduating within six years of enrollment.

Next Data Available: December 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data supplied by institutions which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: The calculation is the appropriation for the Strengthening TCCU program divided by the number of undergraduate enrollments. The $14,353 cost for the FY 2003 value reflects an appropriation of $22.850 million divided by 1,592 graduates. The FY 2004 value reflects an appropriation of 23.3 million divided by 1,880 graduates. The majority of the funds appropriated for this program are used for construction.
