Graduation Rate

Loading...
9%
BELOW AVERAGE

Bacone College graduation rate is below the national average.

9% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bacone 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 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 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 educational institutions.

Enjoyed the community there on campus and the history of the place. Loved the beautiful buildings and grounds.

Worst college experience EVER! So unorganized and they only care about how many sports students they can recruit to get money. The dorms and building are falling down. Alcohol and pot parties nightly at the dorms (these are student athletes) Campus police is a joke and will do nothing. Housing was made aware of drug use but the coach did not want to drug test. Wonder if NAIA would like to know this? One female basketball player got alcohol poisoning and was taken by ambulance to hospital. No consequences was playing in next game. Assistant coach uses God's name in vain and drops the F bomb constantly during practice/workout. So much for a "Christian" based school. Honestly, if you can go ANYWHERE else do so. This school is overpriced and horrible. Financial aid gave me an award check then months later said they overpaid me and I'd have to pay it back WTH??? President is well aware and chooses to do nothing. Very disappointed in my first college experience.

Horrible. Both my older brothers have attended college there for just a semester. The first incident they were in their dorm room when gunshots went off and it was the dorm room under them..... campus security does absolutely nothing and acts as if it's funny. The second and last time. My brother is alone and goes to class for 20 minutes, when he comes back a student of bacone is running away from the passenger side of his truck, my brother looks and they've broken his dashboard and his truck won't start,(wires had been cut)... we call campus security and they laugh as if it's a joke. I guess we should just laugh it off, while he's stranded in Muskogee. He gets to his dorm room and it's been trashed. Would not recommend this college to anyone who has morals and cares about their own well-being.

I got my degree here and I loved every minute of my experience. At big schools you are just a number. At Bacone, every student is valued and helped to achieve their goals.
