Graduation and Retention Rates

Data are presented to be consistent with national reporting guidelines for graduation rates as defined in the Student Right-to Know Act. These guidelines specify that only students who are (1) first-time college students during the fall semester and (2) enrolled full-time during their first semester are to be included in each yearly cohort. Each cohort is then tracked for 6 years. Students not tracked for graduation rates include: students who begin college in the Spring; students who begin college as part-time students; graduate students; and students who are transfers from other colleges. All colleges that participate in federal financial programs are required to report graduation information to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) for its Graduation Rates Survey. The national average for private four-year colleges in 2010 was 55.1% and for public four-year institutions the national average was 39.6% (www.ACT.org). The 2010 graduation rate for Lasell was 51.04% and the 2011 rate was 46.5%.

First-year retention is defined as the percentage of an initial cohort (as defined above) enrolled at the same institution one year later (i.e., freshman to sophomore year). The national average for private four-year colleges in 2010 was 68.7% ("www.ACT.org"). Lasell’s three year average is 68.9%.
