The original campus column reflects students who returned to or graduated from the same campus in which they first enrolled; the Purdue System column indicates from any of the Purdue campuses.  
 
                           
The nationally accepted standard measure of graduation rates is 150% of the normal time to earn a degree for full-time, first-time, degree-seeking students. The normal time to earn a baccalaureate degree traditionally is four years, thus the graduation rate.
