Loading...
66%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Bob Jones University graduation rate is above the national average.

66% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bob Jones 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 consider 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:

A great, biblically-sound university that helps produce well-grounded men and women who are disciples of Christ and reflect a godly image to a world of lost souls. Some of those who need the life-giving power of Christ in their lives are those who have posted negative comments at this site.

Overall Rating:

Academics are great but their financial department is abyssal in performance. Be prepared to have charges and interest hidden from you like you're dealing with a used car salesmen. Poor communication and lack of transparency in their student bills has prevented me from ever recommending this school to anyone post-graduation. I would not advise to anyone to go here especially if you are suffering financial, because you will receive no mercy and no help whatsoever. BJU is not a ministry it is a business and they make that very clear.

Beautifully maintained campus with nice grounds. The buildings, while pristine, seem outdated architecturally. Also the dining halls close at 7pm.While I would definitely not choose to attend this institution, there are people who want to.

This is a great place with caring teachers who honestly care about their students and want to provide a rigorous academic experience for them. I love being a student here.I am an Information Technology student. All of my Computer Science and Information Technology professors are incredible and push me to learn, but also care about me personally.The school is now regionally accredited, which tremendously helps all students who want to transfer or further their education.
