Understanding Graduation and Retention Rates
Why is it important to know college retention rates and graduation rates? And how do The Academy graduation and retention rates compare to the average school? Retention rates have to do with the number of students that return to American Academy of Art after their freshman year. There are two different types of graduation rates, on-time graduation rates and "overall" graduation rates.
While on-time graduation rates refer to the number of years it will optimally take to complete a degree (ie., four years for a bachelor's degree), "overall" graduation rates are on a scale of six years and are most frequently advertised by colleges and universities. If you're planning on graduating in four years, pay attention to The Academy's on-time graduation rates. Graduation rates can also give a better understanding of how much you'll be paying for college in the long run.
