The data in the table above lists students by their year of entrance. Another way to analyze completion data is to examine the completion time of recent PhD graduates. Of the 69 Ph.D.'s completed between Jan. 2005 and Oct. 2011, 30 completed in 5 years or less, 54 completed in 6 years or less. The average completion time is 5.73 years, 43.5% of them completed within 5 years, and over 78% completed within 6 years.
