Trend Information

Historical trend information is collected and used throughout the campus community to assess and monitor the success of our students as well as progress made toward achieving institutional and departmental  goals.


The demographic trends reports include race, ethnicity, age, gender, student level and type, degree type, and residence hall status for fall and spring semesters since 2008 as of census date.


The enrollment trends document includes fall enrollment levels as of census date by major since 2011, spring enrollment by major since 2014, and concentration since 2012.


Retention rates reflect the percentage of students enrolled in fall that return the following fall semester. This document is broken down by school and program, including retention rates for first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students as well as separate analysis of retention rates for all full-time students. Also included is data regarding retention efforts.

Graduation Rates

Graduation rates reflect the percentage of first-time, full-time, degree-seeking fall students who graduate from their program in 150% program time (3 semesters for certificate programs, 3 years for associate degrees, 6 years for bachelor's degrees.) Students who graduate from multiple programs are counted only once, as a student is either a graduate or a non-graduate.

Degrees Conferred

The degrees conferred document represents a ten year history of the total count of all degrees granted each academic year by program. Degrees conferred represents a duplicate count of students, as some students receive multiple degrees in a single year, but each award is counted only once.
