How Many Stay, Go or Transfer?

This week the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center put out a Snapshot Report on persistence and retention, which shows what’s happening to first-time college students after their first year.

While persistence (students who return to the same college for their second year) has dropped a bit, retention (students who return anywhere for their second year) has stayed steady. About one in nine students who start in the fall transfer.

The full report features breakdowns by sector, but here’s a good overview graphic (click to enlarge):
