College Completion, Northern Kentucky University

Four year universities will report the six-year college graduation rates as a measure of college completion. The percent of first-time, full-time students who graduate from college within six years for Bachelor’s degree programs is a standard success measure in higher education. Students who transfer and graduate elsewhere are not counted in this measure.

The six-year graduation rate for bachelor’s degree seeking students from Northern Kentucky University has increased 7 percentage points from the previous year and 17 percentage points from the baseline year.
