(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.
