Quick Facts: Graduation Rates

Federal data sources, as reported by the  Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), allow measures of institutional success in graduating students in a six-year period, with gaps identified between overall rates and African-American students as well as white-African American graduation gaps. These data are reported for first-time full-time freshmen and do not include transfer students or those who are part-time students, due to limitations of federal data sources.

For 27 U. S. News and World Report peers:

  • For 2013 graduates, the average gap between white and African-American students was 22.6%. Webster’s was 11%.
