University of Georgia reaches record high completion rates
The University of Georgia’s completion rates reached record highs, with 75.1% of students graduating in four years and 88.1% in six years. Its retention rate is also strong at a steady 94.3%. These numbers remain higher than both the average completion and retention rates of peer institutions and other Southeastern Conference schools.
This success can be attributed to several of the university’s ongoing programs. These include new faculty hiring initiatives, scholarships and academic support programs, as well as additional resources for mental health. According to President Jere Morehead, “UGA’s holistic approach to supporting students in their undergraduate education along with the outstanding efforts of our faculty, staff and donors are helping our students attain their academic goals and maximize their prospects for continued success in the future.”
