The College of the Holy Cross is ranked 21st for highest graduation rate among private colleges according to Moneywatch.com, a joint effort of CBS and BNET. In a series examining college graduation rates, Moneywatch found that only 27% of full-time freshmen at state schools graduate in four years. By comparison, that number rises to 48% for students at private colleges and universities.
Holy Cross graduates 87% of its students, putting it in the company of other top universities and liberal arts colleges across the country. The list was compiled using information contained in the federal education database. In analyzing statistics about private colleges and universities, Moneywatch reporter Lynn O’Shaughnessy said “the students at these schools are high achievers and the institutions are among the wealthiest, which permits them to offer an abundance of resources to their students.”
