Beginning in 1990, the annual persistence rate and final graduation rate of each of the University's first-year cohorts has been analyzed according to gender.  The sub-cohort of athletes has also been tracked during that period and has been compared to the overall cohort in each of the above categories.  The accompanying table examines the data over the most-recent ten-year time frame.  

Beginning in 2004, retention rates for all academic programs have been tracked in various appropriate semester-to-semester relationships.
