Undergraduate Retention, Graduation, and Time to Degree

Retention and graduation rates in undergraduate programs at UCLA are consistently among the highest in the nation. At least 97 percent of all students entering as freshmen and 96 percent of all students entering as transfers regularly return to enroll at UCLA for the second academic year and beyond.

Recent four-year, five-year, and six-year graduation rates for students entering from high school have averaged 74, 89, and 91 percent respectively, and 92 percent of all entering freshmen eventually graduate from UCLA.

Recent two-year, three-year, and four-year graduation rates for entering transfer students have averaged 63, 86, and 91 percent respectively, and 93 percent of all entering transfer students eventually graduate from UCLA.

Time to degree for UCLA undergraduates has improved significantly over the past decade. Among all graduates in recent years who entered directly from high school, 83 percent were registered for 12 quarters or less (i.e., four years or less), 89 percent for 13 quarters or less, 93 percent for 14 quarters or less, and 98 percent for 15 quarters or less (i.e., five years or less).

Among all graduates in recent years who entered as transfer students, 70 percent were registered for six quarters or less (i.e., two years or less), 79 percent for seven quarters or less, 86 percent for eight quarters or less, and 95 percent for nine quarters or less (i.e., three years or less).
