   This element is program generated by the Retention Build                     
   Process.

   Students are tracked by year after entering a retention                      
   cohort.  Soon after the Summer Final Student Data Course Master              
   File for a year is created, the Fall/Spring/Summer SDCF                      
   records are matched to the previous Retention Demographic                    
   Files (earliest year is 1991) based on Reporing Institution                  
   and Person Identification Number.                                            
   If found, then the appropriate occurrence of the indicator                   
   is set to Y for the year.  Otherwise, the value is set to N.                 
   A blank value indicates that the year represented by the                     
   particular occurrence of the indicator is either in the future               
   or the student has already earned a bachelor's degree or higher              
   from the reporting institution.
