While no information was provided on how many students received rebates, the latest U.S. Department of Education data shows that 43 percent of entering students graduate from Howard within four years.

FrederickmWayne A. I. Frederick, president of Howard University, stated that the university “has an unwavering commitment to the needs of its students. We are excited to offer our students this financial rebate as a reward for accomplishing their goals on time. We certainly hope that some financial relief is provided as well.”
