By summarizing the enrollment procedure in a flowchart, Boise State University simplifies the registration process.
The enrollment procedure flowchart is one of a series of interventions done to improve retention rates in the IPT program. From Fall 1989-1996, the average IPT program retention rate was 56% by the third course (i.e., 44% of online students dropped out of the program by their third course). After implementing the interventions, the retention rate increased to 78% within three semesters and to 85% by the end of 1999-2000 academic year. This in turn resulted in a substantial increase in the number of credits that the IPT online program offered since it started implementing the interventions.
