Graduation – the gateway to success!  


The purpose of the current initiative, Facilitating Graduation II (FG 2), is to increase by 2015 the 6-year graduation rates of First-Time Full-Time Freshmen (FTFTF) students at SF State to 50.6% and FTFTF Underrepresented Minority (URM) students to 47.1%. In addition, by 2015 we expect to increase the graduation rates of upper-division Transfer (UDT) students to 75.8%, and of UDT URM students to 72.4%. Under-Represented Minority students include students who are African American, Latino, Pacific Islander and Native American. Ideally, we hope to achieve this goal by increasing overall graduation rates by 1.6% per year and URM graduation rates by an additional 0.8%, for an overall increase of 2.4% per year.
