Institutional Research Office

The Institutional Research office supports decision making. We report data to guidebooks and websites to help prospective students decide whether York College is the college for them. We also help faculty and administrators within the College set goals and gather information to know whether their goals were achieved, and provide expertise in improving the information people use to make decisions about how to allocate their limited resources. During the 2011-12 academic year, we focused on assessment training across campus, redesigning the Fact Book to be more useful to "internal customers" and supporting initiatives on student learning and the student experience at York College.

Graham School of Business Facts

The Graham School of Business is accredited by ACBSP, and they ask member institutions to publicly post information about student outcomes. Here are some indicators we consider important.

Retention Rates of Recent Entering Cohorts

Retention rates look at the percentage of full time, first time, degree seeking undergraduates who enter in one fall semester and are still enrolled at the college during the next fall semester. Here are the rates for students whose most recent major on record was in the Graham School of Business.

  • Fall of 2011 entering cohort - 70% retention
  • Fall of 2010 entering cohort - 80% retention
  • Fall of 2009 entering cohort - 80% retention

Time to Degree of Recent Graduates

Time to Degree looks at how long it took Graham School of Business graduates to achieve their bachelor's degrees.  For degree recipients in the past few years, here is how much time passed between the student's first semester at York College and the semester when they received their degree. These calculations include students who came to York College as first time (not transfer) students. 

Please note this is NOT the same as a graduation rate or completion rate as those terms are typically used in Higher Education.

  • For students who received their degrees during the 2011-12 academic year:
    • 53% took 4 years to complete their degrees.
    • Another 19% took 4 1/2 years to complete their degrees.
  • For students who received their degrees during the 2010-11 academic year:
    • 60% took 4 years to complete their degrees.
