Next Term Retention

  • Fall to winter term retention is (higher, lower, or the same) as winter to spring term retention?
  • Full-time students are (more or less) likely to return the following term?
  • Are there any differences found in retention when disaggregated by gender or race/ethnicity?

The Next Term Retention Report allows these and other questions to be explored. The report includes all enrolled credit students and is not limited to a specific cohort of first-time students found in YESS retention and IPEDS reporting. Students are counted as retained if they reenroll the next term or if they did not return but had completed a PCC credential in the prior term.
