Oct. 5, 2015
For the third consecutive year, the California State University has witnessed a year-over-year increase in the number of graduates earning degrees from CSU campuses.
Based on self-reported statistical data, the CSU conferred 105,693 undergraduate and graduate degrees last academic year; an increase of two percent from 103,781 degrees granted in 2013-14 and a four percent increase over degrees conferred in 2012-13.
“As California’s greatest source of bachelor’s degrees, it is critical for the CSU to prepare an increasing number of knowledgeable and strongly skilled graduates who are ready to meet the state’s current and future workforce needs,” said Loren Blanchard, CSU executive vice chancellor of academic and student affairs. “The confluence of outreach activities, innovative academic programming and student success efforts play a significant role in enabling the state and the nation to move the needle on college enrollment and completion.”
