Graduation and Retention Rates

Given that many Luther Rice students are considered non-traditional students and have completed some prior college work, the traditional First-Time Full-Time calculation does not reflect the overall achievement of Luther Rice College and Seminary in the areas of Retention and Graduation Rates.  The number of students in the First-Time Full-Time cohorts continues to be so small that an additional calculation is necessary to serve our measurement of student achievement.  Therefore, Luther Rice measures retention rates and graduation rates for all students at each program level (not just First-Time Full-Time).
