    Graduation Rate


    Augusta University graduation rate is below the national average.

    30% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Augusta 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 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 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.

      Overall Rating:

      This is my 3rd year at this school and they have yet to develop a solution for the horrible parking set up they have. The parking is so horrific that I have been late to class on multiple accounts, even when arriving 30 minutes prior to the class meeting time. This is something students have to face repercussions for, which is unfair. I'm upset that the minimum rating I can give is 1 star, because it barely deserves that.

      This school is very unorganized. They had me running around for 2 HOURS because they did not know where I needed to be when I came to ask questions. When it comes to payment day, turns out I have to drop my classes and do a whole different application to be reaccepted. I just need prerequisites for medical school. AND they are trying to charge out of state tuition which is an extra $4000. Please do not waste your money here at this school. Very unprofessional and do not seem to care about the students.

      My experiences here have been stellar. I can’t speak as a resident, however as a student I’m a huge fan of Augusta. I’ve had nothing but professional and resourceful experiences with the admissions staff. The campus is expansive, clean, and beautiful. During a visit, I noticed a quiet calmness about the campus. Even during class changes, it wasn’t very loud. They have study rooms in the library. Three floors total. The campus has a mixture of very modern facilities and old buildings. It’s a nice way to remind you of the campus heritage. The students are incredibly kind, with a massive amount of diversity. I was unsettled by the fact that the residence halls were not on campus. In fact, they’re almost 15 minutes away. They do have very active transport about the campus. The medical college is close to the residence halls so it’s a nice reminder for the premeds. Overall, a very nice facility with typical and above average professors. The staff are so nice and always wear a smile.

      This is the premiere place to get an education in Augusta. Whether you're a medical student or a technocratic businessman, this place is for you. Professors have a wide breadth of experience that enriches their teaching methods.If you're a veteran, this place fits your needs. The military office is very accessible and they work well to get your tuition paid whether that's with your GI bill or TA.
