Graduation Rate

Loading...
58%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Brightwood College-Hammond graduation rate is above the national average.

58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Brightwood College-Hammond 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 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 schools.

Worst college ever. DO NOT ATTEND. Very racial.! Not confidential and they steal your financial aid money. I was removed from the school because I didn’t want to have a conversation with a teacher. Mind you, your grade is accumulated off of attendance. Be very wise when choosing what school to attend. I should’ve read the reviews before applying. I will be getting a lawyer and suing.
