Ala. college graduation rates drop

DOTHAN, AL - Low college graduation rates in Alabama are drawing official attention. A recent report by the Southern Regional Education Board says most students who enter a college as first-time, full-time freshmen take at least six years to earn a bachelor's degree. Only about 55 percent graduate at all.

The SREB suggests colleges improve student graduation by focusing more attention on student success, implementing first-year programs to help get freshmen off to a good start and doing more to meet the individual and group needs of students, among other strategies.
