Roughly 37% of black students at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) finish a degree within six years. That’s four percentage points less than the 2007 national college graduation rate of 41% for black students (down from 45% in 2006), according to an Associated Press analysis of 83 federally designated four-year HBCUs.  The overall national graduation rate is 56%.
