NCAA Division I Graduation Rates

This information sheet and the NCAA Division I Graduation Rates Institution Report have been prepared by the NCAA, based on data provided by the institution in compliance with NCAA Bylaw (admissions and graduation-rate disclosure) and the federal Student Right-to-Know Act. Please note, the NCAA will make this report public. The Graduation Rates Institution Report gives graduation information about the most recent six-year graduating class of students and student-athletes who entered as freshmen. The graduation rate (percent) is based on a comparison of the number (N) of students who entered a college or university and the number of those who graduated within six years. For example, if 100 students entered and 60 graduated within six years, the graduation rate is 60 percent.
