The persistence, retention and completion data tables refer to the rate at which CMC students work toward graduation compared to national community college averages. Persistence rates represent the rate at which students enroll in the spring term after completing the fall term. Retention rates represent the rate at which students enroll in the fall term and also the following fall term. Completion rates represent the rate at which students complete their degree. Measures are broken down into full- and part-time student rates as well as the rates at which students complete their degree within three
and six years.
