Georgia Tech Reaches All-Time High Retention and Graduation Rates

January 10, 2023 | Atlanta, GA

Since the 2011 inception of Complete College Georgia (CCG) — a University System of Georgia (USG) initiative to increase the number of students who complete their degrees — the numbers have continued to rise. 

Students in the Fall 2016 first-year cohort recorded a six-year graduation rate of 93%, an all-time high for the Institute. (In U.S. public colleges, the average retention rate is about 71%.) Underrepresented minorities and women within this cohort also posted record-high graduation rates of 87% and 94%, respectively. Additionally, 98% of students in the Fall 2021 first-year cohort enrolled for a second year. This represents an all-time high for the Institute.
