Graduation Initiative 2025

The California State University launched its Graduation Initiative 2025 in January 2015 with a clear goal: to increase graduation rates for our 475,000 students across all 23 campuses while cutting achievement gaps for all students.

To meet the workforce demands of California’s innovation economy in the years and decades to come, Graduation Initiative 2025 will add 100,000 more baccalaureate degree-educated citizens to California over the next 10 years. This would bring the total number of expected CSU graduates between 2015 and 2025 alone to more than one million.

Under the Graduation Initiative 2025, Cal Poly Pomona aims to meet or surpass the following goals:

  • Increase the percentage of freshman who graduate in four years from 18 percent to 38 percent.
  • Increase the percentage of incoming freshmen who graduate within six years from 63 percent to 73 percent.
  • Increase the of transfer students graduating in two years from 17 to 29 percent.
  • Increase the number of transfer students graduating in four years from 75 to 85 percent.
