Organizational Psychology MA (Online) Student Admissions, Outcomes and Other Data

Retention Rate

The one-year retention rate for those entering the Master’s of Organizational Psychology (Online) program in Fall 2022 was 86% (6/7).  The full-time cohort was 100% (1/1) and the part-time cohort was 83% (5/6).

Methodology: Retention rate is calculated as new students who enrolled in a Fall term of one academic year and came back the subsequent Fall term, e.g.  retention rate = (# retained in Fall 2023)/(# started in Fall 2022). When the program length is one year or less, the retained count includes those who were retained one-semester later (e.g., Spring 2023/Fall 2022) or graduated within one-year of starting the program (e.g., # Graduated between 9/1/22 and 8/31/23 divided by # starting in Fall 2022). This retention metrics tracks students who return to the same program version level (program and modality).
