Editorial: Bigger push to finish college benefits all

Three in 10 students enrolled at an Indiana four-year college graduated on time, and only half finished within six years, according to a report released last month by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

And at Indiana’s two-year campuses, fewer than one in 10 students finished on time, while 12 percent graduated within three years.

The report takes a close look at the progress of Hoosier students at each stage in post-secondary education. It provides data for both state-level and campus-specific two-year and four-year colleges.
