Enrollment, Retention, and Completion

Enrollment, Retention and Completion information is provided here for year over year comparison.

The Weekly Student Enrollment tables contain data gathered each Monday pertaining to the number of students enrolled each week during the current semester.  The previous semesters contain data as of the last day of that semester.  These tables feature a breakdown by credit hours, grade level and student type; and show a total headcount and FTE for that week.  Data Source:  Banner/Cognos Enrollment Reports

The Enrollment and Retention tables contain data pertaining to Northeastern students over the previous five years and the Completion table contains data over the previous three year period.  Each table also features a breakdown of students by gender and race/ethnicity. 
     
The Academic Year Enrollment table consists of an unduplicated headcount of all students, the attempted credit hours and the FTE (full time equivalent) generated.  Data Source:  IPEDS 12 Month Enrollment Survey  
     
The Retention table shows Fall to Fall Retention of new first time students, both full time and part time.  NOTE:  gender and race/ethnicity percentages only include full time students.  Data Source:  Colorado Department of Higher Education One Year Fall to Fall Retention Rates Report
     
The Completion table shows rates of completion by new first time full time students who have been awarded certificates and/or degrees from Northeastern within a three year period (150%); as well as the transfer out rates for students who did not receive a Northeastern award which is then computed into a final combined percentage.  Data Source:  IPEDS Graduation Rates 150% Survey
