6-Year Graduation Rates for Adult Students (Over Age 24
at First Entry), Fall 2006 Cohort

In 6 years or less, 61.3 % of adult students (students who began college over the age of 24 years) at Tennessee's private, non-profit institutions earned a degree. This number includes students who graduated from the institution at which they began, as well as students who graduated from a different institution than the one at which they first enrolled.
