Graduation Rate

Loading...
66%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Asbury University graduation rate is above the national average.

66% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Asbury 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 a huge number of students. This index 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.

Overall Rating:

Thought I was going to Asbury for a good education and life altering experiences, came out with a couple new friends and more debt than any person should ever have to deal with. Now those four years have caused me financial pain that will never go away. Don’t worry though, they have an awesome new guest house and some really nice computers.

My experience at Asbury has grown me both academically and spiritually in the midst of a close-knit community. I've loved being a part of Residence Life here and getting to know all the wonderful students closely as well as the faculty & staff that make Asbury feel like home. It's a 4-year experience that you won't get anywhere else.

Overall Rating:

Asbury is a great school with great community. I grew so much while I was there and continue to stay in touch with teachers and alumni. Like many schools, you get out of it what you put in. There are many awesome opportunities and connections available, if you take initiative. I have my bachelors from Asbury, but if I were to pursue my masters I would definitely look into attending Asbury again.
