What are the retention rates for college?
Retention rates tend to grow based on the academic level of a degree and wether the degree comes from a private or public school. Private schools tend to have a much higer graduation rate. According to ACT surveys, less than 30% of two year students will complete their degree, Approximately 40% of bachelor's degree students at public colleges get their degrees in 5 years or less while more than 57% of students in privatge colleges get their degrees in the same time frame. A similar gap between publics and privates exists for Masters and Phd students.
The most effective college student retention method is in the form of money. Most colleges try to attract or retain the best students in order to continue to obtain financial assistance and stabilty. Some colleges have a tuition retention credit and is awarded to the student during low attendance or a spike in drop-outs.

Using isocratic retention parameters, the gradient elution retention time for several proteins has been calculated. The gradient retention time calculation is based on fitting the isocratic retention data to an equation of the form: log k′ = m log (1/[Ca2+]) + log K and on applying well-established principles of gradient elution. A good correlation between the observed and calculated retention times for several test proteins was obtained at various total gradient times and column flow-rates. Conversely, isocratic retention parameters characterizing protein retention can be calculated from gradient elution retention data. However, even with retention data of high quality, small errors are amplified by the log-log nature of the ion-exchange isocratic retention model employed. Based on the close correlation between predicted and observed gradient retention times, no evidence for protein denaturation resulting from immobilization of the protein at high initial k′ values at or near the column inlet was observed.
