This measures the percentage of first-time students who are seeking bachelor's degrees who return to the institution to continue their studies the following fall. Externally reported retention rate by law measures only full-time, first-time freshmen from fall of their entering semester to fall of their second year.
Note: Increased retention is a reflection of academic engagement, student engagement, financial commitment, and a student's sense of satisfaction all coming together at once.
The overall graduation rate is also known as the "Student Right to Know" or IPEDS graduation rate. It tracks the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time, degree- or certificate-seeking students to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of "normal time" for completing the program in which they are enrolled.
This measures the percentage of entering students beginning their studies full-time and planning to get a bachelor's degree who complete their degree program within a specified amount of time.
