ABOVE AVERAGE

College of the Atlantic graduation rate is above the national average.

70% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to College of the Atlantic completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

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 indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.
