Today, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center released a new "Signature Report" that highlighted the superior graduation rates at private sector two year institutions compared to public and private non-profits. Two year private sector institutions had a 60% graduation rate compared to 45% at non-profit institutions and 38% at public institutions.
"This performance is a result of our sector's dedicated focus on student outcomes. Our institutions are proud to deliver cutting edge programs, student support services, and career services," said APSCU president and CEO Steve Gunderson. "Students choose to attend our institutions because we offer career focused education and the most direct path to a career with real opportunity and income."
