Data: Certificate cohort started in 25 6, associate cohort started in 24 5, bachelor's cohort started in 22 3 Given changing demographics, our country will not have enough skilled s to compete unless many more students from all backgrounds and walks of life graduate. DS* = Fewer than students, so data were suppressed. College America n 3

5 Precious time and money are lost when students don t graduate on schedule. Students are taking too much time Certificate Associate Bachelor s 3.8 years 4.4 years 4.9 years 5.8 years 5.5 years 6.6 years Should take year for full-time students Should take 2 years for full-time students Should take 4 years for full-time students and too many credits. Certificate Associate Bachelor s 69 credits 64 credits 92 credits 99 credits 42 credits 43 credits Should take 2 credits Should take 3 credits Should take 6 credits More students must graduate on time. Data: 27 8 College America n 5

6 More time isn t giving us enough success. For certificate and associate degree students, graduation rates are very low even when more time. Certificate Associate 5.5% 52.% 38.% 42.% 42.%.8% 8.5% 2.2% 3.5% 5.5% In year In.5 years In 2 years In 2 years In 3 years In 4 years On-time graduation rates for bachelor s degree students are shockingly low. And adding time beyond six years produces little additional success. Bachelor s 48.3% 52.9% 2.% 2.7% 25.6% In 4 years In 6 years In 8 years Data: Certificate cohort started in 25 6; associate cohort started in 24 5; bachelor's cohort started in 22 3 Even modest progress provides little comfort when overall graduation rates are so low.
