Graduation Rate

Loading...
10%
BELOW AVERAGE

Baker College graduation rate is below the national average.

10% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Baker 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 a huge number of students. This indicator 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 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.

I searched for a school that offered online classes for the marketing program and found Baker. One of my requirements for Baker was that I would be able to attend majority online and one class at the brick and mortar school. They told me that this specific program was very flexible and that I would have no problem with the schedule I had discussed. During the admissions period, I had almost zero contact from anyone at the school. The one person that did keep in contact did a fantastic job and went above and beyond to make sure I was registered before classes would start on the 6th of January. My assigned academic advisor sent me an email saying to check out her calendar for date to register for classes. Upon looking at the calendar, to my surprise, there were zero appointments open from the day she sent the email all the way until January 13th. Obviously this did me no good as school started the 6th.Their online registration system is very flawed. I consider myself very technologically sound yet I was unable to register for classes for a whole 2 week period because the catalog would not pull up any of the courses I was searching for. I followed the Baker video for registration to a T. In fact, I had the video pulled up on my 2nd monitor and followed directions on my main monitor word for word and was unable to even pull up the class that the registration video demonstrated. Very very bad system.Fast forward again to the January 6th. I had received ZERO instruction as to how I would know when classes started or what the procedure was for doing anything. I emailed my advisor and she replied, "Oh I forgot to tell you about Canvas, this is where you will find everything for your courses". Up until that very point, on the first day of school, I found out about Canvas.Now to the course work. I manage a business and watch my kids, so multitasking is a normal thing for me. Each of these courses I had registered for required 5+ hours of reading as well as an additional 5+ hours of homework. I've attended university before and had no where near this workload with 18 credit semesters I was taking. These online classes met every day and had those 5+ hours of reading and homework everyday. How is that manageable? How is that flexible? The one class I was going to be doing at the actual school needed to be later in the evening but the latest course they offered ended at 6:15pm and was only available on Mondays. How is that possibly considered flexible?Needless to say, I withdrew from school. Was disappointing but I was very much mislead initially which, now, makes it seem like they were only interested in getting my money. The courses were also essentially learn on your own. I'm not going to pay hard earned money for something I can do on my own time.Baker online might be for you if you have no kids, no job, and no social life. I did not enter Baker thinking it would be easy. I entered ready to go BASED OFF OF WHAT I WAS INITIALLY TOLD. The reality was COMPLETELY different and not flexible at all. 100% not self paced as I later found out.

HIT Two year Associate degree that is worthless in the field. Disorganized class scheduling.

There need to be a zero star rating! Too expensive and will make up fake charges to your account just so they don’t have to release transcripts

Overall Rating:

The degrees keep changing and the prices go up as you have to restart what you even sought out to accomplish. If this sounds enticing to you then I can gurantee Baker is the place to go! If little academic help and crippling debt are your future then come on down now!

Always have had a great experience at the Flint campus. From a very active and helpful Dean to majority of instructors I've had have been very great. Finished an associates in applied science and working on a bachelor's currently there. I've seen a lot of bad reviews, but honestly have yet to see what they talk about. Never been in the dorms. For applied sciences and engineering courses it's been great.
