In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, it is the policy of the Mendocino-Lake Community College District and Mendocino College to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Mendocino College, nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period.

SRTK refers to a Federally-mandated public disclosure of a college's Completion Rate and Transfer Rate. The intent of SRTK is to provide to the consumer a statistic of comparable effectiveness that they can use in the determination of college choice. All colleges nationwide are effectively required to participate in the disclosure of rates by January, 2000.

SRTK is a "cohort" study; that is, a group of students who are first-time freshmen, who are enrolled full-time in a fall term, and are degree-seeking. Their outcomes are measured over a period of time. The outcomes that the two SRTK rates measure are Completion (the total number of students in the cohort who earn either a degree, a certificate, or who successfully completed a two-year-equivalent transfer-preparatory program) and Transfer (the total number of cohort non-completers who were identified as having enrolled in another institution). The tracking period of the cohorts is three (3) years, at which time the SRTK rates are calculated and made public.

Completion and transfer rates data, and additional information about Student Right-To-Know Rates and how they should be interpreted, can be found at the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office website" located at
