    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    72%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Assumption College graduation rate is above the national average.

    72% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Assumption 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 index doesn’t consider 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 institutions.

      Overall Rating:

      Assumption College for me was the best career foundational decision I ever made. I had the option to go to Harvard or Yale but Assumption was the better choice.I am a 1968 graduate. The education I received here allowed me to go on to a very successful career as an Army Officer and Aviator and then to retire and form my own very lucrative business. Until Christ be formed in you. This was the motto and goal of the College. Equally to instill in us through enlightened education the qualities we would need to make the world a better place.The college more than exceeded my expectations and give it my highest recommendation.

      Overall Rating:

      Taylor dining hall is inconsistent in their quality of food. The steamed vegetables are like rubber, the pasta is often overcooked, and overall poor quality food. Every couple of times a week they serve something decent, but it's a gamble. Once I got coffee from Taylor when it opened at 7:30 am and I unknowingly put bad cream in my coffee and was sick all the next day. I came to realize that they let the milk sit there overnight and don't always change it right when they open. The juice isn't real juice, it's just powder mixed with water, same as the eggs. As for Charlie's, I have very few complaints. The food is pretty good, the burgers are decent - not UNH quality like I had become accustomed to when visiting my boyfriend but it will curb your craving for a burger.
