Graduation and one-year retention rates of full-time first-time freshmen at any Colorado public institution (not only the original institution).

Students graduating from institutions outside Colorado are not counted.

  • All freshmen: 5 and 6-year graduation rates highest in the state.
  • All freshmen: Retention rate under CSU’s high.
  • Minority freshmen: 6-year graduation rate (the only one used) is highest in the state.
