You can select nearly any four-year college or university and compare its graduation rates with those of similar institutions serving similar students. CRO also lets you view graduation rates by student race, ethnicity, and gender. If you’re considering colleges, this feature can help you pick one whose track record increases your chances of earning a degree.
At CRO, you’ll find:
- Graduation rates for more than 2,000 public, private nonprofit, and private for-profit four-year colleges and universities

Drawing on the nation’s most comprehensive federal database of college graduation rates, CRO compares similar groups of colleges by considering 15 factors known to influence graduation rates. These factors include: student scores on college admissions tests, enrollment, funding, and percentage of low-income students on campus.
