FNRM Student Outcomes

ESF collects data every year on attrition of students from our programs who entered as freshmen, as well as information on employment outcomes for our graduating seniors.  This information is not broken down by major, but rather by department.  The first table shows the attrition rate of students entering into FNRM as freshmen since 2007.  In general, about 60%-75% of entering freshmen are able to complete their degree with 6 years (most finish within 5).  These numbers must be used with caution since a student who transfers from FNRM into another department would count against the department’s completion record.  Also, the numbers do not include transfer students.

Freshman cohort attrition from FNRM, 2007-2013.

Attrition

2007 4 of 15 = 27% after 6 years
2008 8 of 20 = 40% after 5 years
2009 6 of 17 = 35% after 4 years
2010 4 of 20 = 20% after 3 years
2011 5 of 21 = 24% after 2 years
2012 7 of 28 = 25% after 1 year
2013 3 of 34 = 9% after 1 semester

The second table shows the employment outcomes for our students.  The College each year, one year after graduation, performs this survey.  Coming out of the recession, the percentage of students obtaining full time employment related to their degree has steadily increased
