Retention rates measure the percentage of first-time students seeking bachelor's degrees or certificates who return to the institution to continue their studies the following fall. The percentage of students who began their studies in fall 2015 and returned in fall 2016 is fewer than 10 and therefore not statistically significant.

The number of full-time, first-time degree or certificate-seeking students who began their studies in fall 2011 was fewer than 10 and therefore not statistically significant.
