In Georgia, about two-thirds of new full-time students seeking bachelor’s degrees will graduate on time, but for associate degrees, fewer than a quarter will graduate under the same criteria, according to Complete College America. In University System of Georgia schools, that rate is even lower. Only 9.5 percent of first-time, full-time freshmen seeking associate degrees will graduate within three years, according to 2012 data, the most recent available.
