The retention and graduation rate visualization shows the percent of an entering cohort (the group of students who enrolled at AU for the first time in a particularly year), who are still enrolled or have graduated in a subsequent year (shown as one, two, three, and four year rates).

This visual allows you to adjust the entering cohort and the retention and graduation rate. In addition, one can drill down by clicking on a specific race, gender, Pell Grant status, or first-generation college status, and it will change every other category to reflect that selected group.
