Michigan One Of Six States To Buck National Trend In College Graduation By Age
Michigan is one of just six states where students who enter a four-year, public university between the ages of 21-24 complete at a higher rate than students fresh out of high school, according to a new report.
But exactly why Michigan bucks the national trend is difficult to say. Even one of the report’s authors said there may be no definitive reason behind the results.
The report, by the National Student Clearinghouse, shows 75 percent of first-time students between the ages of 21-24 who entered college in 2008 had completed within six years.
