Student Persistence

A “first-year cohort” is defined as all full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students entering the institution during the fall term. Luther, like all institutions, uses the first-year cohort student count as the basis for calculating persistence and graduation rates reported to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Transfer Cohort Persistence and Graduation Rates 2016-2023

Graduation Rates

The HEA (Higher Education Act) added a provision requiring that the completion of graduation rates must be disaggregated by:

  1. Gender
  2. Major racial and ethnic subgroup (as defined in IPEDS)
  3. Recipients of a Federal Pell Grant
  4. Recipients of a Subsidized Stafford Loan who did not receive a Pell Grant and
  5. Students who did not receive either a Pell Grant or a Subsidized Stafford Loan
