Our current retention reports track a specific cohort of degree-seeking undergraduates from their first to second year, broken down by different student-level and institutional-level characteristics.
USF has continually maintained their persistence of degree-seeking full-time, first-time Freshman (FTF) cohort from the first year to their second in the 80th percentile. For example, for the Fall 2012 Cohort, we reported a 87% retention rate.
Persistence into 2nd Year:
Persistence into the third year of school for full-time, degree-seeking FTF have typically oscillated in the low to high 70th percentile, up until our most recent cohort in Fall 2011. For the Fall 2011 Cohort, persistence of degree-seeking full-time, first-time Freshman (FTF) cohort to their third year is at 81%.
