The number of new freshmen enrolling at the University of North Dakota in the Fall Semester of 1996 totaled 1,651. Of this total 1,213 completed the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) survey (see APPENDIX A) during their participation at “Getting Started” during the summer of 1996 (see APPENDIX C for 1996 findings). Four years later a follow-up was administered to this group of students in an effort to track their progress toward graduation. This survey was mailed to 875 students, still enrolled at UND, and achieved a 34.9% (305) response rate (see APPENDIX B).

CIRP is a national study of the American Higher Education System sponsored by the American Council on Education and administered by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. The findings of this study are given in APPENDIX D, with comparative nationally normed data for public universities. Below is a discussion of the 1996 UND new freshmen, with their responses four years later, and how they compare with their national counterparts.
