Fall-to-Fall Retention Rates

First-Time, Full and Part-Time Students

The Retention Rate is the percentage of students first enrolled in the fall semester of the reporting year who are also enrolled in the fall semester of the next year. So, the retention rate reported for the year 2013-14 is the percentage of students first enrolled in Fall 2013 who also enrolled in Fall 2014.

This measure is not collected through IPEDS in the same way for Henry Ford College after 2014, so internal data is used after 2014.
