    55% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Nebraska at Kearney completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

Graduation rate excludes a huge 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.
