Graduation Rates (Most recent 5 years)
This graduation rate is the proportion of students who completed their bachelor's degrees within the specified time out of all those who entered Linfield as first year students (freshman) in the year specified.  For example, if 100 students enter and 80 students graduate within 4 years, 90 students graduate within 5 years, and 100 students graduate within 6 years, the graduation rates are 80%, 90%, and 100% respectively.  The time frame specified does not necessarily reflect continuous enrollment.  For example, a student who entered in the fall of 2010 and graduated in 2015 (5 years) may have taken a semester or a year away from school during that time.
