Almost 50% of all Doctoral Students Don’t Graduate

Academic News & Updates

The Council of Graduate Schools produced a study on the PhD completion and attrition.  The study looked at 49,000 students attending 30 institutions in 54 disciplines comprising 330 programs.  Astonishingly, the completion rate ten years after students begin their doctoral program remains low at 56.6%.

What does this mean? Well, first it means that after years graduate study, and thousands of dollars spent working towards your doctoral degree, 43.4% of students will not complete their program.  Think about that: almost half of all students don’t graduate.   As a result of these attrition rates, aggravated students have file numerous lawsuits and the feds have stepped in to provided new regulations proposed to protect students.

During our 22 years of assisting graduate students through the dissertation process, one common theme keeps emerging: students lacked support services from their online universities.  Many of these students are working full-time, attending schools to improve their lives and those of their families.  Yet, despite their great spirit, spending a ton of money, they (and maybe you) are not getting the needed support.  As a company, we think it’s unacceptable!
