Indicators Used

INDICATOR

DESCRIPTION AND HOW IT WAS CALCULATED

One Year Attrition and Retention Rates

Formula: the 2nd year enrolled/not enrolled divided by the total cohort number=retention rate/attrition rate.  For example, In Fall 2016 there are 4 full-time new freshmen in BA Accounting.  In Fall 2017, 4 of them returned.  Therefore, retention rate is 4/4=100%, Attrition rate is 0/4 = 0%.

Full-Time New Freshman Cohort Graduation Rate

Formula: total number of graduates divided by the total cohort number= graduation rate. For example, there are 3 full-time new freshman in BA Management in Fall 2012.  One of them graduated from Chatham.  Thus, the graduation rate for this group student is 1/3 = 33.3%.

 

New Master Degree Student Cohort Graduation Rate

Formula: total number of graduates in Master degree program divided by the total cohort number = Master degree graduation rate.

*For Online Majors: BA Business Administration and BA Healthcare and Business Management

One Year Retention Rate

Formula: The retention rate is calculated without the graduated students included.  For example, in the HCBM program, there were 9 students who took classes under that program version in the 2018 academic year.  Two of them graduated before Fall 2018 and 5 returned within the 2018 academic year (9-2=7, 5/7=71.4%).
