UNM grad rate has gone up
ALBUQUERQUE — The University of New Mexico is crediting an increase in its graduation rates to its decision to hire more student advisers.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that the university’s six-year graduation rates rose about a half percent this year and 1.5 percent in 2010.
Still, the university’s new 45.1 percent six-year graduation rate for full-time students remains well below the national six-year average of 55.1 percent.
