The new graduation report is out:
The 6-year grad rate increased from 51% to 54% for the class of 2011.
The class of 2012 is on deck. Already, 52% of them have graduated in 5 years, and 11% of that class is still enrolled. If past numbers are any indication, 6-7% of those will graduate this year. Making the projected 6-year grad rate at least 58% for next year!
I predict now that the class of 2013 will crack 60% when this report comes out in January 2020.
When I look at the universe of P5 schools, 59-63% seems to be an important threshold. Twelve P5 schools are in that range. The only P5 schools below that floor are Louisville and West Virginia.
Finally, the 4-year grad rate increased from 30% to 33% for the class of 2013.
The UHin4 program started with the class of 2014. So I anticipate these numbers will continue to rise as well.
