* To be rated exceptional, a college must meet the 80% standard and cannot have any licensure/certification exams for which the college controls who was eligible to sit for the exam with a passing rate less than 70%.
** Number of test takers was too small to report without violating students' privacy
*** 83% of students in both associate degree recipients and the students who transferred with 24 or more semester hours at community colleges had a GPA equal to or great than 2.0 after two semesters at a university. To be identified as EIP (Exceptional Institutional Performance), performance of community college transfer students has to be equivalent to the performance of native UNC sophomores and juniors: 86% for this year.
If the college meets all 8 of the measures, it is classified as an "exceptional" institution and is eligible to receive extra money, which is distributed equally to the "exceptional" colleges.
