Highest 4-Year Graduation Rates

Most students enter college with a four-year plan, but changing or adding majors, retaking classes or taking time off for personal reasons can quickly extend that plan to five or even six years. While getting the most out of your college experience is important, taking additional semesters to earn your degree often means paying more in tuition and fees. The following schools had the highest proportion of students who graduated in four years, based on students who started in fall 2006.
