Ohio Wesleyan University welcomes each fall semester a new group of students starting their first full-time college experience seeking a degree. These are our first-time full-time students. In the subsequent fall semester one year later, we determine the percent of these students who have returned. Over the past five years, an average of 79% of first-time full-time students have returned to OWU for their second year. This is our retention rate.
Ohio Wesleyan also measures the percent of students starting their first full-time college experience who graduate in four years and in six years. Over the past five years, an average of 58% of OWU first-time full-time students have graduated in 4 years, and 67% of first-time full-time students have graduated in 6 years.
Ohio Wesleyan University annually collects information from graduates about their career plans following graduation. Over the past five years, an average of 94% of graduates who respond to the survey report they are either employed or on their way to graduate school.

Licensure Pass Rate
Education majors take a series of examinations, including the Ohio Assessment for Educators (OAE) Assessment of Professional Knowledge. It is important to note that not all program completers take the OAE exam. Additional licensure data from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) can be found on OWU’s CAEP Accreditation Page under Measure 6.
