    UConn Students Earn Degrees More Quickly Than National Average - UConn Today

    UConn students are graduating with their undergraduate degrees in an average of 4.2 years, almost a full year ahead of the average bachelor’s degree candidate at more than 3,600 post-secondary institutions nationwide, according to new figures.

    The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center says in a new report released this week that the average student nationwide takes 5.1 years to graduate, and that it is slightly higher at 5.2 years at four-year U.S. public universities like UConn.

    UConn’s rate of 4.2 years ranks it sixth among 58 public national universities. That means UConn students spend less on tuition by avoiding extra semesters, and are able to start their careers and begin earning salaries before many of their peers.
