Notes:
  1. Cohort includes first-time, full-time, baccalaureate-degree-seeking freshmen enrolled in Fall 2014, who were admitted in Summer 2014 or Fall 2014.
  2. Small cohort counts may limit generalizability of results.
  3. Headcount figures within each row (including totals) are unduplicated.  Students pursuing multiple programs are included in the college figures for each.
  4. For cases with counts of less than 10 students, each count has been replaced with an asterisk (*) to protect student privacy.
