Students Who Withdrew from Oswego During 1975-76.
Characteristics of students who withdrew from the State University of New York (SUNY) College at Oswego during 1975-76 were studied to determine if previously studied trends are continuing. Data are provided on the withdrawal rate for each undergraduate class, by sex, and by college major. The size of the freshman class and the numbers of degrees granted four years later are examined for Oswego and 11 comparable SUNY colleges. It was found that about 12 percent of registered full-time undergraduate students officially withdrew from college during 1975-76. This is a two percent increase over the previous year. The largest degree programs lost fewer students, in the aggregate, than did the total college. Women undergraduates continue to leave in good standing at a substantially higher rate than do men students. Although students continue to withdraw in slightly increasing numbers, the production of degrees continues to exceed the numbers of freshmen who entered four years earlier. Other similar SUNY units have the same experience. (SW)
