Hi Anuragupta!

University of Ashford Graduation Rates*:
Four-year graduation rate: 25.0%
Five-year graduation rate: 41.7%
Six-year graduation rate: 43.8%


That's not bad given that the US avg is about 56-57%.

Also these figures are a bit warped since "these official graduation rates are based on a cohort of first-time, full-time degree seeking students—an antiquated view of American college students that encompasses less than 50 percent of students in the United States. For example, students who transfer, who enroll part time, and who enroll in continuous enrollment schools are all missed.***"


Keep in mind, the proposed Title IV funding requirements are based on repayment rate and a couple of student debt to income ratios, not graduation rates.

Happy New Year!
