Graduation Rate

Loading...
45%
BELOW AVERAGE

Belhaven University graduation rate is below the national average.

45% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Belhaven 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 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.

The art department at Belhaven opened my eyes to not just art but so much of the beauty behind life in general. I'm a graphic design major but I hang around the art students. Design teachers will push you and are very talented themselves, something that many schools in this area are missing.I trust these people.Seriously. I kind of want to sign up for some more classes right now.

Visited the college a week ago with my soccer team from Texas. I would like to send out my sincere gratefulness to the security team for providing me with parking. That was very much appreciative. Keep up the good job!!!

As a Christian parent I have done enormous research into Christian Colleges and Universities for my soon to graduate High School daughter. After narrowing our list of Colleges we traveled to visit some of these Christian Colleges and Belhaven University was incredibly unique. The positive aspects of the university culture there are hard to describe, you have to experience it but there is a sense of cohesion and intentionality in the place that is quite out of the ordinary. It is a place where students are loved and genuinely cared for and where there is a strong sense of looking at students not only as scholars but also as image bearers of God and therefore to be gently discipled in the Christian faith. The sense of academic and Christian community there, among students, faculty and administrators is palpable and strong. Being a small school helps and students are actually known. The campus is peaceful, charming, beautiful and incredibly pleasing to walk around. The buildings are superb and the landscaping, trees, flowers and bushes are kept in a lovely way. There is a southern charm to the place and aesthetically is very easy on the eyes. The professors and members of administration we met were engaging, thoughtful, creative, smart and you could see a genuine love for Christ and for their work. The academics are of a high standard and it is a strong Christian liberal arts school with a faculty and academic curriculum that is unapologetically and solidly Christian. Because the school is rated highly in the Arts, it attracts a lot of fun, creative, bright and nice crowd on students. Nevertheless, Belhaven is academically strong in all the academic disciplines they offer, not just the arts. If I could be a student there, I would run there. The life of community at Belhaven seems to be transformational and my daughter, although she has not made a final decision yet, loved the school and is on her list of her top two choices. May God bless Belhaven for decades to come. Christian parents and students need such a place. Even if my daughter chose not to go there, I will recommend Belhaven University to Christian parents and students for years to come.

This school was horrible! I called there to get information about the program for the Associate's Degree in Business and I spoke to a girl name I think Sara and she sound like she was an idiot the way she couldn't understand when I ask her about the program she didn't know what to say and when I told her that I went to different schools she ask me why did I go to those schools and I told her why and how I was abused mentally, verbally, and emotionally at some of the other schools and I had one school that treated me bad because of my race and I noticed while I was telling her what happened she was making fun of me like "really wow did that really" and she kept saying that over and over and she thought it was funny and thought I was joking about it but I was dead serious and that really hurt my feelings. I told her manager and he told me that same woman was not in her office and he claim I had the wrong person but this woman was the same woman they transferred me to. I notice the devil was busy at their school because it was a whole butch of confusion. I swear I'm not going to that school ever and I will def pray for them and wish them the best.
