CUNY boosts graduation rate

Most community college students take a lot more than two years to earn a two-year degree. A special program at City University of New York’s community colleges helped 53 percent of participants earn an associate degree in three years, reports the Chronicle of Higher Education. That’s much higher than the national average.

The students were ready for college-level courses and attended full time with “financial and academic supports.” The completion rate is likely to down now that it’s been expanded to include students who need remedial courses.
