As a community of scholars, our goal is to see our students successfully earn a college degree. The reality is that many students will not earn a college degree and for the students that do, many have had to overcome significant obstacles in order to do so. In fact, many college students do not stay in college beyond their first semester or year due to economic, emotional, personal, and academic struggles among other factors. This provides a challenge to universities. If students can't even make it through their freshman year of college, how can we expect they will persist to graduation?
The Office of Student Retention collaborates with faculty, staff, administrators, and students to find ways to keep students at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs throughout the first year and beyond. The data and information provided on this page shows the number of first-time freshmen that enroll in classes at UCCS one year after their initial term (i.e. students who began at UCCS in the fall 2014 and enrolled in classes fall 2015).
