The information in this section comes from the IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey (GRS). For complete instructions and definitions of data elements, see the IPEDS GRS instructions and glossary.  

For Bachelor's or Equivalent Programs
Report for the cohort of full-time first-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students who entered in fall 1993.  Include in the cohort those who entered your institution during the summer term preceding fall 1993.

B4.  Initial 1993 cohort of first-time, full-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students; total all students:   3,178    (IPEDS GRS, Section II, Part A, line 10, sum of columns 15 and 16)

B5.   Of the initial 1993 cohort, how many did not persist and did not graduate for the following reasons: deceased, permanently disabled, armed forces, foreign aid service of the federal government, or official church missions; total allowable exclusions:   N/A 
(IPEDS GRS, Section II, Part C, line 45, sum of columns 15 and 16)

B6.   Final 1993 cohort, after adjusting for allowable exclusions:  3,178 
(Subtract question B5 from question B4)

B7. Of the initial 1993 cohort, how many completed the program in four years or less (by August 31, 1997): 648
(IPEDS GRS, Section II, Part A, line 19, sum of columns 15 and 16).  

B8.   Of the initial 1993 cohort, how many completed the program in more than four years but in five years or less (after August 31, 1997 and by August 31, 1998):  742
(IPEDS GRS, Section II, Part A, line 20, sum of columns 15 and 16)

Retention Rates
Report for the cohort of all full-time, first-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students who entered in fall 1998 (or the preceding summer term).  The initial cohort may be adjusted for students who departed for the following reasons: deceased, permanently disabled, armed forces, foreign aid service of the federal government or official church missions. No other adjustments to the initial cohort should be made.

B22.   For the cohort of all full-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students who entered your institution as freshmen in fall 1998 (or the preceding summer term), what percentage was enrolled at your institution as of the date your institution calculates its official enrollment in fall 1999?
