Graduation Rate


Dartmouth College graduation rate is above the national average.

95% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Dartmouth College 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 a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider 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.

I was thinking about professions that actually earn 100k + a year. What could make you like a person that much? I think Demarco Murray was a excellent runningback for the cowboys. He also formerly played as an eagle. My youtube comments are nothing to make a big deal about. He is know a Viking. I have asked questions what matters more in a surrounding environment people or money. I don't know if the difficulties. Those people deserve a lot of money. It doesn't get nearly as cold in Gloversville as it does in Minneapolis. I like Rochester Minnesota doctors. Brock Lesnar was amongst my all time favorites as well as batista. Wow brock lesnar could be both gloversville and minnesota. He went to the university of minnesota. He was born in webster south dakota. Ryan Fitzpatrick was born in gilbert arizona. There were fat heads of WWE wrestlers in 17-19 edgewood. Doctors don't have the right to bully people. I am a law obeying citizen. If anything you work for me doctor. I don't work for you doc. I wish I could've gotten my hands on therapy money. I am sure most Dartmouth grads take on meaningful jobs. You still can't violate anybodies rights. The Dartmouth neurosurgeon knows the cold hard science. People can still be sinful. Genetics don't matter that much. He said UB Dartmouth to the Mount pleasant police officer. I will keep his high salary confidential.
