Statement on Retention and Graduation Rate Trends
The Saybrook Office of Institutional Research maintains statistics on the retention rates of entering students and the graduation rates of each program of study. Below is the latest available data on trends in student retention based on the following definition: Student retention is the percentage of a cohort of new fall term students who are still active or who have graduated the following fall term. Students who are not active for any reason other than graduation (including, but not limited to, leaves of absence and withdrawal) are not retained. The data on student retention trends are reported here based on data collected as of September 22, 2014.
