Graduation Rates

The graduation rate looks at students who started a program in the cohort year (indicated in the left column) and reports on the portion of those students that completed the degree program within each time frame (listed by year). Typical degree program completion times are noted for context. This page was updated in April 2020, therefore recent cohorts displayed are still enrolled and working towards graduation in a future year.
