Graduation Rates

Under the Federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, institutions of higher education are required to disclose information to prospective and current students about institution graduation rates for first-time freshmen. The California State University draws its first-time freshmen from the top one- third of California's high school graduates. Since 1960, the CSU has awarded more than 1.2 million baccalaureate degrees in hundreds of program areas. More than any other senior institution in California, the CSU has maintained access for students who need to juggle academic life with work and family obligations. The rate of graduation will vary depending upon the needs of the individual student to balance work, school and family priorities.
