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 index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Overall Rating:

This school has been really helpful and encouraging in helping me identify and develop my strengths as an actor and a performer. I have a deeper understanding of how my mind and my body operates when I'm performing on stage or in front of the camera, which helps me improve my skills on a more practical and technical level, rather than some arbitrary or misguided advice of "be more believable" or "think like the character" and other such umbrella sentences. The teachers here are super helpful and provide very specific feedback. They always make time to have a conversation and to address any issues or blockages you may be facing, artistically or otherwise. I'm very proud to be a part of the more than 100 year legacy of this school.
