Graduation rates are calculated from the first term a student attends BYU. Only students whose initial college term was at BYU are included. Note that many students take two years off to serve a mission for the LDS Church. Therefore, the six and seven-year graduation rates are the most representative calculations (because most students serve missions, BYU’s seven-year rate is equivalent to five-year-plus rates used by other universities). The retention rate represents those students who are still Communications majors one year after admission to the program.
