Catholic College Graduation Rates are Better Than Peers

Graduation rates at Catholic colleges and universities are better than the rates at public, for-profit and other private institutions, according to a report released by the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities.

The study looks at data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center for students who enrolled in 2006.  It found that 48.4 percent of full-time students at Catholic colleges earned degrees from those colleges within four years, and 56.8 percent did so within six years. That's an improvement of about 10 percent over non-Catholic institutions.

Part-time students, however, did not earn degrees at the same rates as their peers at non-Catholic institutions.
