Women’s Colleges With the Highest Graduation Rates

Nationwide, at large colleges and universities, about 65 percent of all women who enter college graduate within six years from the same institution at which they initially enrolled. At many women’s colleges, students do even better.

According to U.S. Department of Education data assembled by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Wellesley College in Massachusetts has the highest graduation rate among women’s colleges who are members of the NCAA. Some 90 percent of all all women who enroll at Wellesley go on to graduate from the college within six years.
