May 2020

Our member institutions rank first in Minnesota and nationally for the share of first-time, full-time Pell Grant recipients completing a bachelor’s degree in four years. For this analysis the Council compared the rate for our institutions to Minnesota’s public sectors as well as to statewide averages for both public and private institutions nationwide. Pell grants help low-income students pay for college; more than one in four students at Minnesota Private Colleges receive them.
