Graduation Rate

Loading...
66%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Azusa Pacific University graduation rate is above the national average.

66% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Azusa Pacific 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 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 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

Pretty decent school the only thing I would say that they could improve on is creating a balance between their Christian values and the actual information that students need to matriculate. They also need to be a little bit more open to diversity. It’s a really lovely campus and most of the people there are friendly. Their music department is excellent.

Overall Rating:

It is a private Christian school so naturally it’s over priced. The parking for freshman is a joke. My teachers were mostly good at with a lot of experience. I enjoyed the work to and from easy to west campus. The dorms were fine. It definitely had a different vibe in everyone so be sure to do your research. I got stuck in Engstrom, known for being a stuffy dorm. While I’m not a huge partier, I still enjoy getting out and doing things and ended up being stuck on campus a lot due to the people around me mostly being nursing majors. I enjoyed my freshman year and the people I met. Wish I could have explored more.
