Study: Most 2-year college students never finish

A new study finds that most students seeking degrees at California’s community colleges never get them.

The report says 70 percent of degree-seeking students who entered community college in the 2003-2004 school year didn’t graduate or transfer to four-year universities within six years.

Only 26 percent of black students and 26 percent of Latinos completed a degree or certificate program or transferred to a four-year school. The rate was 37 percent for white students.



The report titled “Divided We Fail” was released by the Institute for Higher Education Leadership and Policy at California State University, Sacramento and 15 other organizations.

The authors call for a better system to track student progress that could help campuses boost completion and transfer rates.
