Graduation Rate

Loading...
59%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Andrews University graduation rate is above the national average.

59% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Andrews University 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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 picture. 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.

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S.) or America. ..This place is a education institute of USA . . . . .

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Overwhelmingly mediocre education, administration in financial services is often unavailable on important dates with no prior or public notice. Professors often lack professional connections/contacts and as such their recommendations mean very little. Many credits will not transfer to other universities from AU, and many credits from other universities will not count at AU.Overall extremely expensive for what is largely an outdated although sometimes charming campus.
