Penn State Graduation Rate Far Above Average
The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a story today covering six-year graduation rates at schools in the Eastern Pennsylvania/New Jersey area. Penn State’s six-year graduation rate is 84% (according to the National Center for Education Statistics) and the national average for “Very Competitive” schools (according to Barron’s 2009 edition of Profiles of American Colleges) is 62.3%. The Inquirer also notes that Penn State has one of the ten best graduation rates of colleges in the “Very Competitive” category.
I did a little additional research to compare Penn State’s graduation rate with the other Big Ten schools and Old State did very well. Penn State’s graduation rate of 84% is the third highest graduation rate in the Big Ten. As is to be expected, Northwestern has the highest graduation rate at 93%. Michigan has the second highest graduation rate at 88%.
Here’s a chart of all of the Big Ten schools and their graduation rates.
