Student Retention/Persistence

Completion depends on persistence, and all three cohorts persist at significantly lower rates than students not in the cohort. Persistence rates for low income students range between nine and fourteen points lower; Black/Hispanic students between 13 and 20 percentage points lower; and students aged 20-29 trail by between 9 and 19 percentage points lower.
