Graduation Initiative 2025

Graduation Initiative 2025​ aims to increase graduation rates for all CSU students while eliminating opportunity and achievement gaps. Through this initiative the CSU will ensure that all students have the opportunity to graduate in a timely manner according to their personal goals, positively impacting their future and producing the graduates needed to power ​California and the nation.

Since its launch in 2016, the initiative has already seen success ​​in bringing completion rates to all-time highs in all categories and narrowing equity gaps between underserved students and their peers.

In fall 2021, the CSU announced a plan to redouble efforts to eliminate equity gaps by implementing an action plan that includes a re-enrollment campaign, expanding credit opportunities and providing digital degree planners for all students.

In 2020-21, the CSU graduated 3,692 more students than the previous year.
