* First-time, degree-seeking student: The Federal Department of Education defines this as a student who has never attended any college or other postsecondary institution since graduation from high school. These students may have earned college credit through dual-enrollment classes prior to high school graduation, or attended college for the first time in the summer term just after high school graduation and just prior to enrolling at Covenant. Students who have attended any college prior to attending Covenant are considered transfer students.
