The U.S. Department of Education requires that all postsecondary institutions provide both prospective and current students with information concerning student performance as an illustration of the likelihood of success. The law requires that the information includes the rate at which first-time, full-time certificate and degree-seeking students who attend the institution successfully complete their programs. Students are considered to have successfully completed their programs if they graduate within 150 percent of the time required by the programs. For example, a student who graduates from a two-year program within three years has, according to federal guidelines, successfully completed the program.
