College Completion Rates Continue To Climb According To Commission For Higher Education

Jul 12, 2019

Graduation rates at public colleges in Indiana continue to climb, according to a new report from the Commission for Higher Education.

This year’s annual College Completion report shows more than 40 percent of students who enroll in a public college or university graduate on time. That’s a 2 percent increase compared to last year’s report

The report also says Indiana University Bloomington, Ball State and Purdue University have the highest graduation rates in the state among public four-year colleges. 

Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University share the highest graduation rates among two-year schools, at more than 14 percent. 

The report also highlights disparities in completion rates. Campuses continue to graduate fewer low-income, adult learners and minority students on time compared to their peers.

The commission will release its annual college equity report later this summer.
