Note: These rates do not report on all students at Century. The 747 first-time, full-time students in the study were 9 percent of all students enrolled at Century in fall of 2017.

Why don’t more Century students graduate or transfer in three years?

  • Since Century has an "open door" mission, many new students need to take "developmental" courses to improve their reading, writing or math skills before taking other college courses;
  • Students who switch from full-time to part-time enrollment or "stop out" for one or more semesters are more likely to take more than three years to graduate;
  • Some students take jobs before they graduate;
  • Other students delay their education for personal, family or financial reasons.
