According to the NCAA Official 2004 Division I Graduation-Rates Report, Xavier graduated 93 percent of its students from the 1997-98 incoming class. Duke graduated 94 percent. The NCAA also released a four-class average for all Division I schools. Xavier's four-year average of 79 percent tied for 23rd in the nation.
