The new IPEDS Outcome Measures (OM) survey is the first stab at going outside of the traditional first-time, full-time reporting. We took a birds-eye view of this data across the landscape of reporting institutions using a new Graduation Rates Interactive

  • A total of 3,838 institutions reported data under the OM survey

  • The completion rate at 6 years is higher for non-first-time students that are full-year at 54% than for first-time students at 49%. 

  • Part-time completion rates for first-time students is 16% while non-first time students is 27%.

  • Pell-grant recipients for four-year institutions had a completion rate of 42% compared to over 64% for those who did not receive a Pell Grant or subsidized Stafford Loan.

The new Graduation Rates Interactive is automatically available to subscribers of the Higher Education Interactive library. This new Interactive computes analysis based on the new OM data as well as extensive graduation rate data at 100%, 150%, and 200% of normal time levels.
