(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 Appalachian 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 Appalachian State University are represented by the darker aqua bar with two white stripes underneath ().
  • Students who started at Appalachian 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.

The SAM First-time-In-College Stacked Credentials model tracks a group of students who started at Appalachian State University in the Fall of 2010. The chart shows the highest degree earned for students in the group within 6 years. Click on the bar segments in the chart to see the breakout by type of degree earned (associate or bachelor’s degree) or institution (Appalachian State University, another 2-year school, or another 4-year school). The same group of students is included in the results for every year. To review the data for previous years for this group of students, click the “view detail data for graph” link.

  • Students who graduated with an associate or 2-year degree are represented by the red bar ().
    • Click on the red section of the chart to see the proportion of students who earned their associate degree from Appalachian State University or from another institution.
  • Students who graduated with a bachelor’s or 4-year degree are represented by the green bar().
    • Click on the green section of the chart to see the proportion of students who earned their associate degree from Appalachian State University or from another institution.
  • Students who are still enrolled are represented by the aqua bar ().
    • Click on the aqua section of the chart to see the proportion of students who are still enrolled at Appalachian State University, at another 2-year institution, or at another 4-year institution.
