Graduation Rate

Loading...
75%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences graduation rate is above the national average.

75% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

I went attended orientation and was impressed with the feel of the campus, it is quite nice. Education has a strong record as well.

Overall Rating:

It's really lovely that ACPHS has been doing construction in a building students live in all semester :) The best part is that it now occurs every day of the week beginning at 7 AM and finals week is next week (not like students need sleep or the ability to study in peace and quiet or anything). Maybe next time the college undertakes a big construction project, they should consider doing it in the summer. Oh, I forgot to mention the asbestos they removed... hope they did that properly.

What an amazing school. Don't even know how I passed with all the partying and drugs I did. Pharming is my life on and off campus.
