A BMW can't take you as far as a diploma

We've looked at the precentage of folks over 25 in Virginia who have earned a B.A. or higher, but how does Virginia rank in graduation rate of students at state colleges and universities? Second! 70.5% of public colleges and universities graduate in 6 years, while 51.6% graduate in 4 years. UVA has the highest graduation rates: 6 years is 93.1%, 4 year is 86.3% - both with an average completion cost of $108,000 per student. Interestingly, UVA also offers the most per recipient in student aid. You can see how all of the state colleges and universities rank by following this link: http://chroni.cl/y5NZNd. Really interesting info - especially if you have a child looking at any of these schools!
