Graduation/Completion and Transfer Out Rates

Students' Right to Know Disclosure

Disclosure of Institutional Graduation / Completion and Transfer Out Rates

Montana Tech of The University of Montana is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution’s graduation/completion rates.  The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.  The rates reflect the graduation/completion status of the first-time, full-time undergraduate degree/certificate seeking cohort who enrolled during the specified year.   

When reviewing this information, please keep in mind:

  • 150% of the normal time-to-completion equates to 6 years for a Bachelor, 3 years for an Associate, and 1 ½ years for a Certificate.
  • Though we are not required to report transfer-out rates, we’ve reported that information because many local area students plan to attend Tech for a year or two prior to transferring to another institution to complete a degree not offered at Tech.
  • Graduation (and transfer-out) rates do not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, on official church missions, or in the foreign service of the federal government.
  • Students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are also excluded.
  • This information does not identify the reasons why students may have withdrawn; therefore, students who withdrew for personal or medical reasons are included in the non-completer or transfer-out group.
  • A pound sign (#) denotes any cohort/sub-cohort with five or fewer students.  Montana Tech is not required to disclose this information and chooses not to disclose due to student privacy issues.
