    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    43%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    California State University-Sacramento graduation rate is below the national average.

    43% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to California State University-Sacramento completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.
