Increasing college and university student retention and graduation rates continues to occupy UVU, USHE, Northwest Accreditation, and overall U.S. educational directives. Utah Valley University has made concerted efforts to retain and graduate all students, but most recently non-traditional students.  The population of 33,050 students was solicited via email to take an online survey.  Of those who responded, approximately 799 attempted the survey, but only 431 completed the majority of the survey questions.  These 431 respondents were categorized into three groups based on their level of interest: Very Interested, Somewhat Interested, and Not At All Interested.  Of the 431, about 80.8 percent indicated some interest in returning to UVU and 41.8 percent indicated that they were very interested.
