Retention and Student Success Rates
Graduation Rate, per IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey, submitted Spring 2014 using the Fall 2010 first-time, full-time cohort. (Success rates include graduation and transfer out.)
In 2006, Aims began to study the retention rates of students who had developmental needs and moved to implement a program to better serve students with these needs. The FYE (First Year Experience) course, Advancing Academic Achievement (AA090), was mandated for all students assessing into one developmental need area and is open to all interested students.
- Students who took AAA from 2008-2011 were 7% more likely to complete in 200% than students who did not take AAA.
- Fall to Fall retention for AAA students has held steady at over 50% for the last several academic years compared to 39% for all new students.
