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 2019 there were 6 full-time new freshmen in BA Accounting.  In Fall 2020, 3 of them returned.  Therefore, retention rate is 3/6=50%, Attrition rate is 3/6 = 50%.

Full-Time New Freshman Cohort Graduation Rate

Formula: total number of graduates divided by the total cohort number=graduation rate. For example, there were 9 full-time new freshmen in BA Management in Fall 2015. Four of them graduated from Chatham.  Thus, the graduation rate for this group student is 4/9 = 44%. 

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 3 students who took classes under that program version in the 2019-2020 academic year.  One of them graduated before Fall 2020 and the remaining 2 returned within the year (3-1=2, 2/2=100%).
