Graduation Rate

Loading...
9%
BELOW AVERAGE

Brookhaven College graduation rate is below the national average.

9% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Brookhaven 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 an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration 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.

My professor, Mr. Dai Yuan, for Cal I, promised me one on one that he would drop one exam grade after I came to him after class concerned about the grade I got on the second exam. He went on to explain grades to the class informing us that people that fell in the 60 range at the end of the semester, he would have to check and see if they had good attendance and went to the math lab that he would give them a C (passing)(I had perfect attendance). Its now the end of the semester and I ended up with a 57 because Mr. Dai decided, rather than dropping any exams, to replace the final exam grade with the lowest grade. I did not do well on the final so no grade was dropped in my case. I could have earned a 62 in the course and passed. I want the community to know that this is the very last course I need to graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. The Dean at UT approved me to move back to Dallas to be with my critically ill mother and transfer my last credit to graduate. I also have a job offer that is contingent on me attaining my degree this semester. Was fired from my job this semester because I was spending so much time in the Math tutoring lab. Due to being laid off, my mother and I were finally evicted. In the midst of eviction, I was studying for my final exam in Cal 1. I earned a D in this course all because Mr. Dai changed his mind and upon reaching out to him, still denied keeping his promise. I guess I appear to be a girl thats begging for a grade but as a student of UT, I am completely understanding of regulations and rules. I am only going by what Mr. Dai promised me. Its crazy how I gained more compassion from a larger, more established, extremely strict University than Brookhaven. I truly respect Mr. Dai but I think his actions in this situation are unconscionable. Upon contacting the dean in the Math department, she informed her assistant to cancel my appointment with her because she claimed that the syllabus is the only binding agreement between me and Mr. Dai. She never gave me one second to inform her the details of the matter. I hope this is not what the world has come to. A student became homeless in the midst of her final exams and you can not sit with her for one second? Education is serious and grades are based on performance but I have experienced a theme of zero compassion and consideration from the people of Brookhaven. I am saddened and fearful for what the future holds for my mother and I.

For the most part everyone is helpful. However, a few instructors and administrators need to learn they're not better than everyone else. Yes, for certain classes we have to go here, but if someone had a choice, I'd say to run to another campus. Courtesy and kindness need to be keywords here.

For the most part various departments have been helpful. Some people are rude, don't understand they are working a customer service position (testing center), but not everyone is polite and helpful. I understand. Overall I am happy going to school here. I do take mostly online classes but have taken science classes on campus. They have a wonderful science tutor center. I would frequently visit it to practice for my lab A&P exams. The advisors are a hit or miss. The most helpful to me has been a Native American older gentleman. Patient and kind. Point is, there's good and bad but for the most part I've had good experiences. I had a kind but very confused and disorganized lab professor. The dean got involved and actually allowed out class to get an extra day to study for a practical. The class was a disaster, but the dean tried. This was at the end of an 8 week A&P class.
