As Maryland's open-access, adult-serving institution, UMGC serves a unique and diverse population of students: transfer students, active-duty military servicemembers, veterans, and working adults. To provide an accurate picture of student success, UMGC has identified a specific set of measures for our student population.

UMGC Graduation Rate Information

A widely accepted measure of institutional success is the graduation rate. Tables 1 and 2 below present worldwide and stateside graduation rates for various subgroups of UMGC’s student population. Worldwide data includes the overseas military community served by UMGC through its contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense. These students represent a population with unique circumstances associated with military life and education.

See Table 3 and Table 4 for data disclosures required by the Department of Education.
