B6. Final 1999 cohort, after adjusting for allowable exclusions: 1049
(Subtract question B5 from question B4)

B7. Of the initial 1999 cohort, how many completed the program in four years or less (by August 31, 2003): 863

B8. Of the initial 1999 cohort, how many completed the program in more than four years but in five years or less (after August 31, 2003 and by August 31, 2004): 103

B9. Of the initial 1999 cohort, how many completed the program in more than five years but in six years or less (after August 31, 2004 and by August 31, 2005): 21

B10. Total graduating within six years (sum of questions B7, B8, and B9): 987

B11. Six-year graduation rate for 1999 cohort (question B10 divided by question B6): 94%

Retention Rates
Report for the cohort of all full-time, first-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students who entered in fall 2004 (or the preceding summer term).

No other adjustments to the initial cohort should be made.

B22. For the cohort of all full-time bachelor's (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduate students who entered your institution as freshmen in fall 2004 (or the preceding summer term), what percentage was enrolled at your institution as of the date your institution calculates its official enrollment in fall 2005? 98%
