Sections B12 to B18 ask how many students of a particular cohort completed programs that are either less than two years or between two and four years in length. Does your school interpret this to mean any student from the initial cohort who completed a program, or only those who designated themselves as a completer of that type of program (less than two years vs. between two and four) when they started out as a first-time, full-time degree/certificate-seeking student?

For example, if the latter is the case, freshmen who initially declared themselves as certificate-seeking students would not be counted if they went on to complete an associate’s degree and not a certificate, and vice-versa.

Thank you,
