The SAM Full-time Bachelor's Degree model tracks a group of students who started a bachelor's degree program at Western Carolina University in the Fall of 2013.

  • Students who started at and graduated from Western Carolina 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 Western Carolina 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 Western Carolina University are represented by the darker aqua bar with two white stripes underneath ().
  • Students who started at Western Carolina 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.
