NH college students rank highly in graduation rate


N.H. students are making the grade.

The Granite State is among the top states where students graduate within six years at its four-year, state schools.

The latest numbers show 78 percent of students from the University System of New Hampshire schools (UNH, Plymouth State, Keene State and Granite State College) earned a degree within six years, second only to the state of Iowa.

The national number, only 63 percent.

But New Hampshire ranks high in another category, too. The percentage of college students who start his or her education in New Hampshire, but finish it out of state is at 12 percent.

New Hampshire is one of 14 states that have a percentage above 10.
