Not planning on graduating in four years? Don't worry; according to this infographic, you're actually in the majority.

FindTheBest, an extensive research and data site, analyzed federal statistics and found that there is no state where a majority of college students graduate in four years. The state of Virginia has the highest four-year graduation rate, at 46 percent, while Nevada has the lowest rate at 8.75 percent.

The site also analyzed six-year graduation rates and found that there was a slight improvement, but not much change between the states.

According to a report done by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, the overall persistence rate (the percentage of students who return to college after their first year) for first-time college students is slipping. Only 68.7 percent of students who started college in fall 2012 returned to any institution the next year.
