Principal Professional Program Retention Rates


The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Strategic Planning, and Assessment calculates and reports retention rates of principal professional practice programs that satisfy the following criteria:

  • Progression is a combination of retention (students returning for a particular term) and graduation (students graduating by a particular term).
  • Students are enrolled primarily full time.
  • Programs are practice-oriented and the degree is typically the minimum required to enter the field of practice.
  • Students follow a largely predetermined course of study of at least two years duration.
  • Programs typically have entering cohorts of at least 50 students.
  • Retention rates are updated each fall after the fall enrollment data is available.
