Two colleges in Virginia had the highest six-year graduation rates among public institutions. Over all, private nonprofit colleges graduated two-thirds of first-time, full-time students who started in 2011 within six years, while public colleges graduated nearly 60 percent. For-profit colleges lagged far behind, graduating just under 21 percent of their first-time, full-time students within six years.
