Graduation rates and financial need: Major public universities
This sortable chart shows six-year graduation rates at 100 prominent public universities, two for each state and one for the District of Columbia. Wyoming is an exception because it has only one public four-year university. The chart shows the share of all students who entered a given school as first-time, full-time freshmen in 2010 and then graduated within six years with a bachelor's degree. It also shows six-year graduation rates for those with enough financial need to qualify for federal Pell Grants, and the percentage-point difference between the two rates. One caveat is that the chart does not take into account students who transferred or started in school part-time.
