This report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center shows state-by-state outcomes for students who started postsecondary education in fall 2010 at four‐year, public institutions; two‐year, public institutions; and four‐year private nonprofit institutions. Nationally, the report says 44.8 percent of adult learners who started in a four-year institution completed a degree within six years; in five states—Arizona, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, and Virginia—more than 60 percent of adult learners had a degree within the same period.

Supplement to National Student Clearinghouse's Signature 12 report provides six-year completion rates, including degree and certificate completion, disaggregated by race and ethnicity for students who began postsecondary education in fall 2010.
