17%
BELOW AVERAGE

Arkansas Baptist College graduation rate is below the national average.

17% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Arkansas Baptist College 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 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 educational institutions.

this place is garbage. i mean literal GARBAGE. where do i even begin? first off let me say and explain how the financial aid department is garbage. we’ve been here since june, and we still haven’t even received our refund check, then when my mom called up here they would never answer. it’s EXTREMELY rare that they answer the phone. they choose your own majors for you if you’re an athlete. the classes here are terrible, the teachers don’t even care about the work they give, they just throw an assignment in your face and let you go. when we first coming here, the staff lied about this place entirely saying it was a “university” then when we came here it looked like a condemned playground. the food here is disgusting, they only give you two tickets, and give you food as if you’re a kindergartner. the breakfast is trash, especially the breakfast where the cereal is served. they’re always out of cereal, and give you some baby bottles. the WiFi here doesn’t even work, barely. i have to go in the lobby just to get a text through. the people below who say the school is bad are not lying, at ALL. take it from me. i don’t recommend this school, at all. i wouldn’t want my worst enemy to attend here, id rather take online classes.

The opportunity to mentor students and give back to the community has led me to leave a lucrative job and accept a career opportunity at Arkansas Baptist College. Our students make every day a blessing. They are energetic, passionate, eager to learn and have new experiences. The College is making every attempt to strengthen our foundation of education and leadership in the global community. It's a pleasure to work with the students, faculty and staff at this institution.

Simply put, I'm happy to be at ABC! I'm a new employee (3 months) but I've been here long enough to see the Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni love our students! We make professional and personal sacrifices to help students and offer them a holistic education. They have no clue how great it makes us feel to know we're making positive differences in their lives. It's those moments when students share a challenge they're facing that lends just the right opportunity for us to learn if what we've been teaching about life and education is being applied. The evidence of success is clear because they overcome life's obstacles and seek greater opportunities. I'm happy we can give our students tools of success to obtain internships and career positions, not to mention, scholarships and fellowships from our donors and partners! Less I forget to mention the best tool we offer our students. We offer a personal relationship with Christ. We don't force God on people or add pressure. We simply let our students know who He is and offer them an invitation. Things are looking up!

Overall Rating:

Arkansas Baptist College is a school of opportunity. Most people that comment negatively about the college are not involved on campus or off. Arkansas Baptist College is loaded with opportunities such as student government, internships, and job opportunities. Being a current student, I have witnessed one-on-one help with students and professors, one-on-one with advisor, and financial aid guidance. We have an active President and Vice Presidents, also a Dean of Students that will go above and beyond to make our campus great.
