Retention and Graduation Rates

The majority of National University’s undergraduate population has had prior college experience and transfers credits from other institutions. Retention and graduation rates for first-time, full-time undergraduate students are publicly available through the Integrated Postsecondary Education System (IPEDS). Since transfer students are not represented in this statistic, the rates below include all incoming degree-seeking students for a more comprehensive view of student achievement.

A Full-year Cohort represents a group of students entering at any time during the 12-month period July 1 to June 30.

One-Year Retention is a measure of the rate at which students persist in their educational program at National University, expressed as a percentage. This is the percentage of degree seeking students from the previous academic year who are again enrolled in the current academic year. The academic year begins on July 1st and ends June 30th.

150% Graduation Rate is calculated as the total number of degree seeking completers within 150% of normal time divided by the full-year cohort.
