Save Money: Check Out Graduation Rates

One of the best ways to reduce the cost of college is to graduate on time.  Fewer than 30% of students attending state schools graduate in four years.   Less than 60% of all college students graduate within 6 years.
Many students skimp on college research because they consider it time-consuming or they don’t know where to start.  Checking out graduation rates by institution is easy.  You just need to know where to look.
College Results Online ( provides interactive tools to query graduation rates at four-year colleges and universities. In addition to providing college-specific graduation rates and other data (e.g. cost, financial aid), the comparison tool provides analogous information for similar colleges.
