As per the disclosure requirements of the U.S. Higher Education Act of 1965, amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, the table below shows the percent of domestic full-time first-time degree-seeking students who entered St. Olaf College in the fall semester of the given year and graduated within 6 years, or 150% of expected completion time, disaggregated by the following subgroups:
- recipients of a Federal Pell Grant;
- recipients of a subsidized Stafford Loan who did not receive a Pell Grant; and
- students who did not receive either a Pell Grant or a subsidized Stafford Loan.
Note that students are considered to have received a grant or loan if it was disbursed during the year used for determining the cohort − the year entering in fall term. Degree completion is by August 31 each year.
|Entering Fall Semester|
|Federal Loan, no Pell||86.8%||88.4%||84.5%||86.9%||85.2%|
|neither Federal Loan or Pell||87.5%||87.8%||89.5%||87.4%||86.9%|
|Domestic students, neither Pell nor Fed Loan*||87.6%||87.9%||89.9%||87.2%||86.5%|
|Total cohort completion rate (all combined)||87.3%||88.0%||88.2%||86.2%||86.4%|
*International students are not eligible for federal student aid; the “neither Federal Loan or Pell” is further split here by citizenship status, although this is not reported to IPEDS.
