Note. This report uses the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Enrollment Cohort of First-time Freshmen defined as fall term, first-time, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduates. The cohort includes students enrolled in the fall term who attended first time in the prior summer term, and students who entered with advanced standing (college credits earned before graduation from high school). Students who graduated from high school within the same calendar year of the fall term are included even if they previously attended college. Learning Support students have a requirement (at matriculation) in either Reading, Math, or English, or are voluntarily taking Learning Support Classes. Enrollment is counted until first undergraduate level degree is granted by Georgia Southern University. GPA is the Cumulative Grade Point Average from the fall Enrollment Census file (reflects last CUMGPA prior to fall). Data in the table above reflects the following eligible exclusions (deceased or military withdrawal) as defined by IPEDS: Fall 2008 (n=1), Fall 2009 (n=2), Fall 2011 (n=1), Fall 2012 (n=1), Fall 2013 (n=1), Fall 2014 (n=2), Fall 2015 (n=1), and Fall 2016 (n=2).
