The College Completion Fund (CCF) included in the Build Back Better Act is a first-of-its-kind federal investment in college retention and completion aiming to ensure college students make it across the graduation stage. This is a critical investment as colleges currently graduate only about half of the students they enroll. Without this investment, more than 6 million students could fail to complete college within five years, based on an analysis of first-time, full-time students who have completed their degree within 150% of expected time to graduation in each state.
