In this Fast Fact #14, we examine recent retention data on students attending Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSIDs), and make comparisons to retention rates of undergraduate students from a national data source. As retention has been found to differ between 2-year and 4-year institutions and between residential and non-residential campuses (Tinto, 2006–2007), we make these comparisons with the TPSID data.
