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 2018 there are 5 full-time new freshmen in BA Accounting.  In Fall 2019, 4 of them returned.  Therefore, retention rate is 4/5=80%, Attrition rate is 1/5 = 20%.

Full-Time New Freshman Cohort Graduation Rate

Formula: total number of graduates divided by the total cohort number=graduation rate. For example, there are 2 full-time new freshman in BA Management in Fall 2014. Both of them graduated from Chatham.  Thus, the graduation rate for this group student is 2/2 = 100%. 

Master-Degree New 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 7 students who took classes under that program version in the 2018 academic year.  Three of them graduated before Fall 2019 and 3 returned within the 2019 academic year (7-3=4, 3/4=75%).
