Completion rate
Complete and pass 75% of all hours attempted at UH Hilo
Courses with grades of F, W, I, NC and repeated courses count as hours attempted

Completion rate example
BUS 100 3 credits A
PSY 100 3 credits W

6 earned ÷ 12 attempted = 50% completion rate

Normal completion time

Note: total attempted credit hours include transfer hours!
Normal completion time
