The Chronicle’s recently released study, titled “Graduation Rates Over Time,” compares the graduation rates of 1,400 schools in 2002 and 2008. The Chronicle found that overall, graduation rates at American higher education institutions have declined by 33 percent since 2002 — with the recession as a likely cause.


While Harvard has a graduation rate of 98 percent, things are different on the opposite coast–only ten percent of San Francisco’s Golden Gate University students graduate from the institution, according to a new report by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Golden Gate is followed by Alliant International University in San Diego and Idaho State University, with meager rates of 11 and 16 percent, respectively.
