Communications

From: Mary Connaughton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

For FY2015 and FY2016, available data on
- Graduation rates
- Student retention rates
- Average high school GPA for admitted students
- Average SAT score for admitted students
- Percentage of student transferring to 4 year college upon graduation

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Mary Connaughton

Hi Mary,

Thanks for your inquiry regarding Quinsigamond Community College.

For Academic Year 15/16, our IPEDS 150% graduation rate is 17% and our IPEDS retention rate is 55%. 43% or our graduates continue their education at other institutions. We don’t record high school GPA or SAT scores in our system.

Have a great day,

Josh
