This report presents retention and graduation patterns of full-time undergraduate students at Maryland's public four-year colleges and universities from 1980 to 2000. It focuses on the number and percentage of students who were retained at their original campuses and those who graduated from any senior public college or university in the state. Two institutions that do not enroll first-time freshmen are excluded, as is the University of Maryland University College, which has a mission to serve the adult, part-time population. Data show that the second-year retention rate of all full-time, first-time undergraduates, as measured by the percentage of those returning to their original campus after one year, was 81.5% for the 2000 cohort. The second-year retention rate for African American students was below that of other students and was the lowest for this group since the 1991 cohort. Female students are more likely to re-enroll that male students are. The 6-year graduate rate for the most recent cohort of all new full-time students is at an all time high at 58.4%. The 6-year graduation rates for African Americans and Hispanics are significantly below the rates for whites and Asians. Information is given about the graduation and retention at individual institutions, and tables show statewide trends in retention and graduation. (Contains 7 figures and 58 tables.) (SLD)
