Colgate’s NCAA graduate success rate was 98 percent for the second year in a row, putting the Raiders in a tie for best in the Patriot League and fourth in the nation, behind only Brown, Dartmouth, and Notre Dame. This is according to NCAA data, compiling the four-class average of student-athletes that entered their schools from 2003-06.
