Student Success


Through a combination of increased retention of continuing students (see below) and a larger incoming class, total enrollment at Menlo College is steadily growing.

Fall Enrollment


Menlo College is proud of the way our students have demonstrated their commitment to our institution through an increase in our retention rate, as represented below. We credit many factors to the increasing success at Menlo College, including strong and committed academic support services through our newly formed Center for Academic & Professional Success, sustained national recognition* of the quality of a Menlo education, and AACSB** accreditation.

Retention Rate
* The decline in fall-to-fall retention recorded in 2014-15 is attributed to the closure of the Menlo College football program.

At Menlo College, we are increasingly making a four-year graduation goal a reality.

In the United States, only a minority of students graduate in four years, according to data reported in a U.S. News & World Report survey. Menlo College is bucking the trend.Our four-year, as well as our six-year graduation rate has climbed over the last five years.  As illustrated below, our six-year graduation rate reached 60% for the most recent cohort (exclusive of students who transferred to another institution).
