CGU regularly analyzes and reports completion, attrition, and retention rates, as well as time to degree, for masters and doctoral students using multiple cohorts across time. Over 40% of CGU students are enrolled part-time. Many students at CGU also work part-time or full-time while pursuing a degree.
