Comprehensive Program Review (CPR) - Retention

The CPR 1st Year Retention tables were designed to support the University System of Georgia (USG) and Academic Affairs/Institutional Effectiveness report needs for individual academic program reviews. These tabulated data are based on University census data finalized by the University Registrar's office and approved in conjunction with the USG according to USG reporting request dates. USG census dates may be found at: http://www.usg.edu/research/data_reporting_systems/academic_data_mart
