Sticky Facts on College Completion
We have a college completion crisis in the United States, where colleges graduate just over half of all the students they enroll.

We are heartened to see the federal government acknowledge the importance of getting students to and through college with a first-of-its kind investment in college completion. This infographic highlights key facts about the broad impact of college completion to help support policymakers and advocates in their continued efforts to get more students across the finish line.
