Supporting All Students in College Selection

We work hard to prepare all students to be college ready, but what happens when we get there? Different academic and social support systems on college campuses yield different graduation rates for students in college, just like they do in high school. At The Education Trust’s College Results Online website, families can easily research and compare the graduation rates of colleges, particularly to identify rates for underrepresented minority groups.

“Choose a college” to see its characteristics, and with one click, how it compares to “similar colleges” based on SAT and GPA scores of entering freshmen. Or, “Compare Colleges” to select a group of colleges and see how outcomes stack up. Which public college in Washington has the smallest gap between overall graduation rate and minority graduation rates? Where are rates highest? Check them out at!
