Graduation Rates

Graduation rates are among the most important factors used in judging the quality of an undergraduate college. The following table shows the graduation rates based on a cohort of full-time first-year students who are seeking a degree for the first time. The first column in the table below shows the year the students entered the college. The next column provides the number of students included in the entering cohort. The subsequent columns show both the number of students as well as the percentage who graduated.
