The national six-year college completion rate reached 62.2 percent, a 1.2 percentage point increase from last year. The completion rate increased regardless of starting institution types. Two-thirds of states increased at least 1 percentage point in completion rates over last year.
This is the tenth report in the Completing College report series, featuring the completion rate trends nationally and for states, updated with the fall 2015 entering cohort's outcomes tracked through June 2021.
The new longitudinal data dashboard offers national and multi-state comparisons through interactive visualizations and analysis tools. Underlying data are available online for downloading. The national eight-year completion rates are not included in the current report and will be published at a later time.
