More Idahoans Graduating On Time

And Attending College

LEWISTON, ID – More Idahoans are finishing college on-time according to numbers put out by the Idaho State Board of Education.  The numbers also show that in the last seven years, more first-time students are attending college full-time.  Here are some numbers reported by the state:

-     20.3 percent of students who graduated in 2017 from one of Idaho’s four-year institutions with a bachelor degree - collected their diplomas on time after four years – a 6.3 percentage point increase since 2011

-     41.9 percent of 2017 graduates were awarded a bachelor degree after six years, a 5.3 percentage point improvement since 2011and the best percentage rate since 2013

-      At Idaho’s community colleges, 11.5 percent of the 2017 graduating class earned their associate degrees after two years, the best percentage rate increase since 2012

-     21.6 percent of community college graduates collected their associate degrees after three years, the highest rate seen since 2011

-     The number of first-time, full-time students - usually high school graduates entering their freshman year of college - increased 35 percent in the last seven years

The Board of Education credits its “Complete College Idaho”, or “CCI”, initiatives to helping improve the numbers.  Institutions used CCI tax funds to improve student outreach, advising, and adding additional faculty to deliver more high-demand courses to retain or attract students
