WVU-Keyser's retention and graduation rates are calculated following the US Department of Education method.  The calculations are based on the first-time full-time degree-seeking cohort of students who began their undergraduate academic careers at WVU-Keyser in a given year. The cohort does not include new students with transfer credits.  Retention and graduation rates are calculated based only on enrollment at and graduation from the WVU-Keyser campus. Financial aid status is based on status in the student's first time freshman fall term.
