Undergraduate Student Retention & Graduation


College-wide Graduation/Retention: is very different from ‘traditional’ university-wide graduation/retention. This statistic measures how many students have been retained within or graduated from exactly the same college into which they first entered as First-Time freshmen. A student may change majors and stay within the University and perhaps even graduate with a degree from a different college, however for the purposes of this metric that student would be considered as ‘dropped-out’. Thus these figures will likely be lower than university-wide retention/graduation results. The same logic applied to the Campus-, Department, and Major-wide graduation/retention.

Housing Status: is defined by the First Fall Semester when a student is enrolled.
