Graduation Rates/Retention

Return Rates

These tables show the number and percent of new students for a given fall term that returned one year after they first enrolled.

Graduation and Tracking Rates

These graphs show the proportion of a cohort of students that graduated by or were still enrolled during each subsequent fall term.

Nth Year Graduation and Return Rates

These tables or graphs show the number of students in a cohort that graduated or returned in a given year (i.e., 6-year rates). This allows further study by breaking the data down by another variable. When the data is broken down by major at entry, additional information is included that shows how many students graduated or returned in the same major or in a different major.
