Retention & Graduation Rates

Retention Rates

The University calculates what percentage of first-time, full-time, bachelor’s degree-seeking, freshmen return for the fall of their second year. The retention rate for the fall 2015 cohort of students was 87.6%.

Graduation Rates

Mercer provides information on the graduation/completion rates of full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduates, and student athletes receiving athletic financial aid. The graduation rate cohorts began their education six year prior to the most recently completed academic year. Please refer to the Office of Institutional Effectiveness's Web site at Graduation Rate Disclosure for these rates and for more information.
