The 2007-08 column in the Profile shows the percent of new beginning freshman who enrolled for the first time in Fall, 2006 and who were still enrolled as of Fall, 2007.

The number of freshmen in the starting cohort and the number persisting for a year are also shown, with a breakdown for underrepresented minorities (American Indian/Alaskan Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander) and by gender. A student is counted as being retained even if the student has switched to a different college at Illinois. Students who are called to military service, enter church missionary service, or die are removed from the cohort and are not counted in the denominator.
