This report provides retention and graduation data on the fall 2001 NHS General College
cohort, as well as predictors of retention. As of summer 2005, approximately 8% of the cohort
had graduated and another 47% had enrolled in the 2004-2005 academic year. Differences in
retention were examined based on gender and ethnicity. Gender differences were not observed,
however there was a difference in retention based on ethnicity. High school rank and ACT
composite scores were not significant predictors, but first term GPA was a significant predictor
of later retention.
