Graduation Rates in Higher Education Improve - February 2019

The completion goal in the 60x30TX strategic plan aims for the completion of 550,000 certificates or associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degrees in 2030. Increases in completions can stem from both growth in enrollment and improvements in graduation rates. Since 2000, Texas institutions have shown impressive increases in graduation rates. Further improvement, particularly in on-time graduation rates (four years at universities, two years at community and technical colleges), will be necessary to achieve the goals of 60x30TX.
