Student Success Retention Rates: Fall 2014 to Fall 2015

The first-time, full-time freshman fall 2014 to fall 2015 cohort retention rate was 57% - over 1.5 percentage points higher compared to the four year average.  Female and male students were retained at nearly the same rate, closing the gap between prior years where females were retained at a higher rate (more than 5 percentage points).

Who had the highest retention rate among the different category of all students you ask?  63% - Athletes  1

Research from the Center for Community College Student Engagement indicates students persist when they . . .

  • Are active & engaged learners
  • Establish meaningful relationships with faculty, staff and peers
  • Have high expectations & aspirations
  • Navigate successfully through the front door -- college systems, processes and procedures
  • Have more structure, fewer options, clearer pathways

 1  OCCI retention rate was 74% - students at OCCI are enrolled in a cohort group that is designed to complete in 5 terms, this represents an increase of nearly 3% compared to prior year
