DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - Low college graduation rates are drawing official attention.
A recent report by the Southern Regional Education Board says most students who enter a college as first-time, full-time freshmen take at least six years to earn a bachelor's degree. Only about 55 percent graduate at all.
The SREB suggests colleges improve student graduation by focusing more attention on student success, implementing first-year programs to help get freshmen off to a good start and doing more to meet the individual and group needs of students, among other strategies.
