The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Humboldt State University

Humboldt State is a public institution and part of the 23-campus California State University system. With full-time undergraduate tuition of just $7,130 annually, we're one of the best higher education values in the nation. We have just over 8,200 students and 550 faculty members. We offer a wide array of academic choices, with 48 majors and 11 graduate programs in 3 Colleges. Faculty members are among the top teachers and researchers in their fields. Programs in natural resources and sciences are nationally known, while visual and performing arts are also popular areas of study. Throughout the curriculum, students find a long-standing commitment to social and environmental responsibility. We were founded as a teacher's college in 1913. Over the last century, we have grown from an institution focused solely on teacher education to a fully accredited university with extensive research facilities. There have been plenty of name changes over the years: We have been called Humboldt State Normal School, Humboldt State Teacher's College, Humboldt State College, CSU Humboldt and, since 1974, Humboldt State University.

The SAM Bachelor’s Degree model tracks a group of students who started a bachelor’s degree program at Humboldt State University in the Fall of 2008. The students’ progress toward a degree is reported within 4, 5, and 6 years. The same group of students is included in the results for every year.

The sections of the SAM chart represent the proportion of students in the original group with the following five outcomes.

  • Students who started at and graduated from Humboldt State University are represented by the darker purple bar with the solid black bar underneath (). (This section of the chart Within 6 Years is approximately the same as the federal graduation rate, but it may differ slightly for each institution.)
  • Students who started at Humboldt State University and then transferred to and graduated from another institution are represented by the lighter purple bar with the white stripe underneath ()
  • Students who started at and are still enrolled at Humboldt State University are represented by the darker aqua bar with two white stripes underneath ().
  • Students who started at Humboldt State University and then transferred to and are still enrolled at another institution are represented by the lighter aqua bar with the bottom white stripe ().
  • Students from the original group whose status is unknown are represented by the green bar with the top white stripe (). These students may have graduated or still be enrolled somewhere, but their status could not be determined conclusively.
