Student Achievement

Upholding a strong commitment to academic excellence in a diverse educational and cultural environment, the University evaluates student success in a manner consistent with its mission. The University enrolls students who are committed to earning an education that will prepare them to pursue various careers in the sciences, social sciences, and health sciences.  Two measures the University uses to define and monitor student success are graduation and retention rates.
