  • Stanford graduation rates

    Can't believe that the University allows the release of this "sensitive" data.

      Why do you deem it sensitive? They're bragging:

      89 percent of scholarship athletes who entered Stanford University in 1999 graduated within six years, compared with 94 percent of all students. . . .
      The graduation rate was much higher than the average of other Division I universities and colleges, where 63 percent of scholarship athletes and 61 percent of all students graduated.

        Isn't all of that considered public information?

          Maybe, maybe not. Stanford is a private university. It may not be required to divulge this info.

            With the new APR rating, I would imagine the graduation rates of NCAA DI college athletes are going to get a lot more public over the next few years.

            Maybe private schools have to divulge this information somewhere as part of their accredidation? When I first transferred to Lindenwood, I was looking through various booklets they gave me, and I found these numbers buried in one them. Lindenwood has an abysmal graduation rate of incoming freshmen (most transfer) and I can't imagine they would publish this information if they didn't have to. I seem to recall seeing the same type of information available at Florida and Georgia.

              CFR: Title 34 — Part 668.46: Information on Completion or Graduation Rates:

              The college completion rates or graduation rates (including transfer rates and student athlete rates — Part 668.49) will be made accessible to the public.
