San Francisco State University is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990). The rates reflect the graduation/completion status of students who enrolled during the 2011-2012 school year and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed.

During the Fall of 2011, 3,469 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking freshmen entered San Francisco State University. After 6 years (as of August 31, 2017), 53.6% of these students had graduated from our university. An additional 4.4% were still enrolled in Fall 2017 and pursuing their degrees at the university.

While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:

The graduation and continuation rates are based on 6 years of attendance that equates to 150% of our longest program.
