Bachelors by another route (wow!)

Close to half of those who earn Kentucky bachelor's degrees did not complete a bachelor's program within six years of entering it. Here are the basic numbers:

Who are those non-six-year people? Some are certainly people who take more than six years to finish. My hunch is that more of them are people who did not start out in a bachelor's program at all: they enrolled at KCTCS and transferred to a university later in their postsecondary careers.

This is a big shift in my understanding of how Kentucky degree attainment works.

Source note: the six-year numbers are here, and the others are calculated by subtracting that group from the bachelor's degree totals in the 2007 CPE report here.
