    Notes:
  • The above tables show how many masters students have completed the degree by certain anniversary points after beginning a program; the rest of the entering cohort may have dropped out or may still be pursuing the degree
  • Some students are admitted to doctoral programs first and switch to masters later or pick up the masters along the way; entry date is the start of the term of first matriculation to the graduate program, regardless of initial degree objective
  • Cohorts entering in an academic year means they matriculated Summer, Fall, or Spring term; for example 2010-2011 means Summer 2010 through Spring 2011
  • For each category (e.g. Male), the percentage shown is the percentage of the total students in the group, but for each anniversary (e.g. Degree After 2 Yrs) the percentage is of the students in the category
  • Gender is self-reported and optional, so males+females may not equal the total
  • "International" means non-citizens and non-permanent residents
  • "Minority" includes citizens and permanent residents of African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic/Chicano/Latino, American Indian, and Hawaiian/Pacific Islander ethnicity
  • Ethnicity is self-reported
