Many in-state students at West Virginia’s public higher education institutions don’t earn a degree after six years.
An annual graduation report shows fewer than half of in-state freshmen enrolled in fall 2005 earned their degrees six years later.
West Virginia University was the exception. The university’s 2012 six-year graduation rate was 56 percent.
Marshall University’s six-year graduation rate was 44 percent, followed by Shepherd University, 43 percent; and West Liberty University, 41 percent.
Other schools’ rates were: Concord University, 38 percent; Fairmont State University, 34 percent, Glenville State College, 30 percent; Bluefield State College, 25 percent; WVU Tech, 24 percent; and West Virginia State University, 21 percent.
