Student Retention and Graduation at the City University of New York: Fall 1970 to Spring 1974.
Kaufman, Barry; Botwinick, Rena
This document concerns the retention and graduation of students at the City University of New York. Major attention is devoted to those who entered the senior and community colleges of CUNY as first-time freshmen in September 1970. This group was the first to enroll in the university under the open admissions policy. This report includes the group status (enrolled or not, graduate or not) after eight semesters, and data on retention and graduation. First, findings are presented for men and women and by students' area of residence, as well as for high school average categories. Second, data on freshman class entering CUNY each fall since 1970 is used to compare the retention of the first open admission students with subsequent enrollees. Last, some comparative statistics on graduation are presented including: data for a CUNY sample prior to open admission, data from a national sample of college students, and data from a selected group of two-year and four-year colleges.
