Graduation Rates Rise Despite Pandemic

(Indianapolis, IN) - Despite an unprecedented disruption to school schedules last year, college graduation rates actually improved.  That’s according to a survey just put out by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.


According to the report, over 44% of all Hoosier college students graduated on time last year, which is up 2% since 2019.  Graduation also increased for students who take a bit longer to do it. 64% of college students needing more than four years eventually graduated, also up 2% from 2019.  A previous study from earlier this year, however, shows that college enrollment in Indiana continues to decline.


The goal of state education officials is for 60% of all Hoosiers to have a college degree or certification in the next four years.
