Statement on Retention and Graduation Rate Trends

The Saybrook Office of Institutional Research maintains statistics on the retention rates of entering students and the graduation rates of each program of study. Retention rate data are reported for each school and for the University. Below is the latest available data on trends in attrition (withdrawal from Saybrook) by students based on two different measures: (1) Percent departing during their first year of study; (2) Percentage of total enrolled students who withdraw during a specific year. Both measures are reported here based on data collected as of September 15, 2013.
