Only 50 percent of students graduate within six years

Of the 54.1 percent of students that have graduated, 12 percent received a degree from another institution. 29.8 percent of students had dropped out by the sixth year.
In the state-by-state comparisons, Minnesota had the highest rate for students graduating from the institution they first enrolled in at 27 percent.
