Student Achievement at Mississippi State
Mississippi State University seeks to provide challenging and supportive education experiences that prepare students to be leaders in their professions and in the state and nation. This goal builds on our historic emphasis on access, academic excellence, and student success. To evaluate the extent to which our students are achieving this goal, Mississippi State uses measures such as student learning outcomes assessment with data from national exams and surveys, retention and graduation rates, job and graduate-school placement rates, and licensure passage rates.
The retention rate measures the percentage of full-time, first-time degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in a fall or summer term who returned the following fall term.
|Cohort start term||Retention Rate|
