Texas by the Numbers
STATEWIDE CONTEXT
Graduation Success
The most important measure of postsecondary success is degree completion. The tables below show enrollment and
graduation success for first-time college students entering Texas public universities and two-year colleges in fall 2010. As
the tables indicate, student enrollment in higher education does not ensure graduation. The tables also show that part-time
students are less likely to complete a degree than are full-time students. The bar charts at the bottom show that Texas
students attending public institutions of higher education enroll in more semester credit hours, on average, than are required
to earn a degree, and they take longer to graduate. Statewide, success numbers increase somewhat when comparing 6- and
10-year graduation rates. Both 6- and 10-year graduation rates increase over time.
