I would say that the classification “Degree-seeking” has more to do with the program in which the student is enrolled and less so with the student’s intention. For example, if it is a certificate bearing program, a student enrolled in such would not be classified as a degree-seeker…
My two cents…

If we have a student who enrolls in credit-bearing courses as a first-time, full-time undergraduate, but who says they do not intend to graduate from our institution and indeed transfers out after their first year, should they be included in our cohort? Do they count as “degree-seeking”, or not?
