The Persistence report provides information on the number of students who persist from one semester to the next. Cohorts are built by counting all new first-time, full-time students and persistence rates are calculated by following-up to see how many students were re-enrolled in each subsequent term. Graduates are removed from the calculations in order to determine actual persistence rate for those eligible to be persisted. This information can be filtered by various degree-types. Data reported includes counts and percentages and can be filtered by degree-types.
