CU-Boulder graduation & freshman retention rates by gender and ethnicity-citizenship group

2000 through 2014

Full-time freshmen entering summer/fall only
(full time = 12+ hrs, counted at end of the fall term)

Students graduating from institutions other than CU-Boulder are NOT counted in the graduation rates.

Note: Counts for the current year are preliminary; freshmen are dropped from the official retention population for a given entry year if they are part-time at the end of their first term. Consequently, the number in the entry population for the current year may be revised at the end of the fall term.
