Attrition and Retention of First-Time, Full-Time Students in Two-Year and Baccalaureate Degree Programs: Class of 1974. Report No. 4-76.
Annas, Tommy; Iverson, Sherwin
In order to compile attrition/retention information for students in the State University of New York (SUNY) system, this study identifies and charts the flow of two full-time, first-time student cohorts: (1) students first enrolled in fall 1970 in bachelor degree programs; (2) students first enrolled in fall 1972 in two-year degree programs. The tables in this study present information in the form of flow charts which divide the cohorts into various subdivisions reflecting the relative success of students in achieving their educational objectives. Data are presented for the SUNY systems as a whole, and for individual SUNY institutions, including university centers, university colleges, specialized colleges, statutory colleges, health sciences centers, agricultural and technical colleges, and community colleges. The current data indicate that SUNY maintains a favorable position with regard to comparable national figures. The most striking characteristic of the current data, as compared with data from previous reports, is that summary data for SUNY have remained virtually unchanged. This constancy is in spite of some substantial changes in the data for individual institutions, especially some of the community colleges. (NHM)
