Retention (Student Persistence)

The most recent IPEDS data show a retention rate of:

  • 21% First-Time Full-Time entering Fall 2016 to Fall 2017
  • 50% First-Time Full-Time entering Fall 2015 to Fall 2016
  • 73% First-Time Full-Time entering Fall 2014 to Fall 2015
  • 53% First-Time Full-Time entering Fall 2013 to Fall 2014
  • 83% First-Time Full-Time entering Fall 2012 to Fall 2013

The overall retention rate of all full-time students from:

  • Fall 2016 to Fall 2017 was 52%
  • Fall 2015 to Fall 2016 was 71%
  • Fall 2014 to Fall 2015 was 84%
  • Fall 2013 to Fall 2014 was 71%
  • Fall 2012 to Fall 2013 was 77%

Completion

The overall graduation rate for students who began their studies in 2009 was 38%. The transfer-out rate was 5%. The reporting standard for completion specifies a time frame of 150% of published time to complete a bachelor’s degree. (Thus the reporting format allows six years to complete a four-year program.)

Please Note: Many colleges use a reporting formula for completion that excludes entering students who do not intend to finish a full four-year program at that college. St. Louis Christian College includes in its completion rate every First-Time Full-Time student, including those who perceive a benefit from enrolling for fewer credits than the number required to complete a degree. Colleges also may report students as completing a degree program who transfer to another college before doing so. St. Louis Christian College reports students who transfer to another college as non-completers.
