Graduation Rates for California State University, Los Angeles

The data presented below are from a longitudinal report collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).

The report follows a group of full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students that started college in a given year. The chart shows the rate that the original cohort received their bachelor's degree in 6 years.

The completion rates are the percentage of the cohort that completed within 4, 5, or 6 years. To calculate the rate, all completions up to and including that time-frame are used as the numerator. For example, based on a cohort of 100 students, if 25 students complete their bachelor's degree in 4 years, the 4-year completion rate is 25%. If 15 students take 5 years to complete their degree, the 5-year completion rate is 40%; that is 40% of the original cohort completed their degree within 5 years of starting. If 10 students take 6 years to complete, the 6-year completion rate is 50%.

Select a year in the table to see the completions by ethnicity and gender for that cohort.
