Undergraduate degrees to at-risk students
The data used to create the At-Risk graphs was obtained from THECB. The population is defined in THECB’s Accountability Website as:
“Definition: At-Risk includes students who received a pell grant, graduated with a GED, were 20
years or older when they first entered college, started as a part-time student taking less than 12
hours, or had an SAT/ACT score less than the national average. For all categories except GED,
students were tracked back 10 years if data was available. GED was tracked back 6 years. Age is
determined by year of enrollment minus year of birth. The SAT/ACT score from the CBM00B
(Application report) is checked first and if no match is found, then the College Board data is used.
The SAT/ACT national averages come from the www.collegeboard.org and www.act.org.
Source: CBM001, CBM00B, SAT/ACT scores, GED files from TEA”
