What was the on-time graduation rate for these students?

Of students who completed this certificate in the 2012-13 academic year, 87.9% completed on time.

NOTE: The federally required method for calculating this rate assumes students will enroll full-time, declare a major immediately, and enroll in it continuously until certificate completion. In reality, many community college students attend part-time, explore several majors, stop out for a term or more, change majors, or brush-up academic skills to be better prepared for college level courses, affecting this narrowly defined on-time graduation rate.
