Can someone tell me what a YIELD RATE means Answered
What is a college's yield rate?
Earn karma by helping others:
A college yield rate is the percentage of accepted students who matriculate to the university. For example, lets say that 1000 students apply to a university, 600 are accepted, and 300 end up accepting their offer of admission. The college would have a 60% (600/1000) acceptance rate and 50% (300/6000) yield rate.
To yield is to allow/accept/return. If you are referring to a college, then it may be their retention rate (the rate that students return the next year). I believe this is the answer you are looking for. If not, then let me know.
