Indiana's college graduation rates are on the riseJuly 15, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A new report says Indiana's college graduation rates are improving as more students complete their degrees on time.
The report released Thursday by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education found that nearly 41% of students at all Indiana colleges graduated on time last year. That's up from about 28% five years ago.
Students graduate on time by completing a bachelor's degree within four years or an associate degree within two years.
The Journal-Gazette reports that the commission's report also found that about 62% of students now graduate within six years.
The report says that at four-year colleges statewide, about 47% of students finished on time compared to about 36% five years ago. The report says that colleges' main campuses typically had higher completion rates than satellite campuses.
