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.

Northeastern State University

With three scenic campuses in Tahlequah, Muskogee, and Broken Arrow, Northeastern State University is Oklahoma’s fourth largest public four-year institution of higher learning. NSU was founded in 1846 as the Cherokee National Female Seminary, opening its doors in 1851 as the first institution of higher learning in Indian Territory. On March 6, 1909, the Oklahoma legislature purchased the Seminary from the Cherokee Nation and on September 14, classes began at the newly formed Northeastern State Normal School in Tahlequah. Through the decades, NSU has played a key role in the area’s history and development. Today, NSU offers a comprehensive education with academic emphases in business, technology, social sciences, mathematics, health professions, sciences, optometry, education, language and the arts. We empower students, faculty, staff and the community to reach their full intellectual and human potential by creating and expanding a culture of learning, discovery, and diversity.

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