Graduation Rate

Loading...
78%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Brigham Young University-Provo graduation rate is above the national average.

78% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Brigham Young University-Provo 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 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

Justin Baron, I don't know what you've been reading, or if you've even been here. This place is amazing. Also, the events that happened 150+ years ago with the Mormons cannot define the religion now.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Mormons are rude and I have a hard time believing that they are Christian. If you don’t look exactly like them, they will walk right past you and not even say hello (not very Christian). They immediately want to know if you are Mormon. They have an agenda, and that is getting you baptized into their religion- I assume to raise their numbers-it’s all about numbers, just watch their General Conference and you’ll see what their all about(they always mention how many new members they have).The religion reminds me of an old fashioned pyramid scheme. Hey, don’t forget about what they did at the “mountain meadow massacre”. Don’t believe me?? Look it up. Shameful .Mormons whine about how they kept getting kicked out of all these states because of their religious “beliefs”. Dude! You are practicing polygamy!!!!!! Of course you are getting kicked out.I recently read that Joseph Smith started his own bank in Kirtland Ohio and was selling his own people bonds that failed within a month and he fled to Missouri and while in Missouri he started some more problems there and was charged with treason for attacking his own country. He escaped from a local jail and fled again to Illinois and after several of his own members of his church turned against him there, he tried to flee again. Joseph smith declared Marshall law in Nauvoo after he had his mob vandalize a newspaper that stated their opinion about him (which was probably factual). This man was no martyr, he was a fraud, a phony, a treasure hunter that NEVER found treasure and a coward , plus a fleeing felon. Oh and he also married over 40 women (some were already married). Sounds like a wonderful man. If Jesus did all these things, would people follow and trust Him??....don’t even get me started on Brigham young

Overall Rating:

I attended school here for 2 years of my undergraduate degree. It is a good education for the money. It is a safe environment. It is also very cold here in the winter time. The culture is very different here. I remember when i went to register for classes i was denied entry because i was not wearing socks with my shoes. It was so frustrating. That was a little extreme IMO.

Overall Rating:

Best university for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Very good university for people of other faiths—especially Christian—that support high morals and values for themselves or their children. The Honor Code is great because it allows you or your children to participate in a great learning experience without making mistakes you’ll regret later in life. The only downside to the University could be the lack of diversity but it’s nothing to lose sleep over.

Overall Rating:
