More Fodder for Higher Ed Data Freaks

Q: What Virginia college had the highest four-year graduation rate of any four-year private institution nationally?
A: Washington & Lee University, with a 92.8% graduation rate.

That compared to an 84.5% rate for the University of Virginia, a 49.1% rate for all Virginia public universities and a 31.3% rate for all four-year colleges nationally. Virginia public institutions actually have the third highest four-year graduation rate in the country.

Find those statistics and more at the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s “College Completion” website in a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
