Definitions:
Year-to-Year Retention: The number of returning traditional students from the previous fall’s incoming cohort of students (that is, the “new” Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students) divided by the total number of potential returning traditional undergraduate students from the previous fall’s incoming students (the total number of the previous year’s Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors), expressed as a percent.

Semester Headcount: Full Time student total number + Part Time student total number, including off-campus interns and students across all programs and years.

Traditional student: A student who is enrolled full-time (for ABHE purposes this is defined as 12 credit hours or more/semester) in a certificate, diploma, or degree program of study.

(Program of Studies) Completion Rate: The percentage of students who complete their declared program of studies within 200% of the normal time required for the completion of the certificate, diploma, or degree as per the criteria documented in our catalogue (whether or not they chose to formally graduate from their program of study). The Completion rate is calculated by dividing the number of students completing their indicated level of study (certificate, diploma, or degree) by the total number of students enrolled in each cohort of certificate, diploma, or degree students, expressed as a percentage.

Grad Placement Rate: The number of students from the degree graduating classes who, within six months of graduation, were either working full time in ministry, volunteering at least 20 hours per week in ministry, or had returned to school for further education in their chosen area of ministry, expressed as a percentage.
