The Expected Graduation Year value is less than the calculation based on the Cohort Four-Year Graduation rate. If the Expected Graduation Year needs to be corrected, the expected graduation needs to be updated.
The Cohort four-year graduation rate is calculated four years from the year the student entered Ninth grade for the first time. For example, if a student is a first time 9th grader in 2017-2018, the student’s cohort is 2021 (2017 +4).
Normally the Expected Graduation Year and the Cohort Year are the same but if the student has a change in their expected graduation year, THIS WILL NOT CHANGE THE COHORT for the student.
Adjust the expected graduation year for the student in your SIS and send the updated data into ADVISER. If the student isn’t in the correct grade level (and is not actually in 9th grade), adjust the grade level in your SIS and send that updated data into ADVISER.
