Retention Rates

Retention measures the rate at which students persist in an educational program.  For four-year institutions, this is defined by IPEDS as the percentage of first-time, full-time students from the previous fall term who are again enrolled in the current fall term. The table below reflects the retention rate for Franklin University undergraduate students who entered the University in fall of the given year and returned in the fall of the following year.
