SPOKANE, Wash. - As an indicator of academic quality, Gonzaga University reports that it has increased its six-year graduation rate from 63 percent to 80 percent, making it one of the highest-performing institutions in the nation from the perspective of student retention.

Already one of the most selective institutions among Master's I schools in the West, Gonzaga has achieved its unprecedented graduation rate in the same way it has achieved unprecedented enrollment growth - through a combination of key factors, including an excellent university experience from top-flight faculty and staff, a substantial need- and merit-based financial aid program for students, and an operating strategy that balances quality and affordability.
