Fall 2012 New Student Enrollment and Retention Outcomes: Comparative benchmarks for four-year and two-year institutions
"This report documents the one-year changes between fall 2012 and fall 2011 in new student enrollment and retention in higher education at the undergraduate level. The report is based on a national, Web-based poll Noel-Levitz conducted of college and university admissions officials in October of 2012. In addition to collecting official census data for fall 2012, the poll collected fall 2011 census data and fall 2012 institutional goals for comparison and context" (Noel-Levitz, 2012).
