For Kettering College, retention rates are defined by the Federal Government and include the following students:

  • Those who have never attended any college before.
  • Those who are studying towards an undergraduate degree.

This group does not include graduate students, students who are not seeking a bachelor’s degree, and those students who transferred from another college.

This information is also reported annually to IPEDS in the Fall Enrollment survey and can be found on College Navigator.
